Hotel Carlota — Mexico City, Mexico

Hotel Carlota — Mexico City, Mexico

A sense of time and place percolate deep within the walls of Mexico City’s Hotel Carlota, a new boutique property nestled within the lively Cuauhtémoc neighbourhood. Remodelled from the dilapidation and decadence of the long-deceased Hotel Jardin Amazonas, the project – by studio Javier Sánchez Architecture and collaborators Cadena + Asociados – was initiated as an urban archaeology scheme, integrating elements of the past to inject historical perspective into the modernity of its new form.

Thus, a lattice of aging black concrete blocks shape communal walkways between rooms and common areas, while exposed brickwork and reclaimed trinkets in guest rooms contrast to an abundance of minimalist angles and contemporary furniture. Notably, the pool and central courtyard retain their place as the property’s spiritual centrepiece, invoking a modern oasis surrounded by the activity of the gallery, library and restaurant that provide discerning options for guests to relax and enjoy a moment of peace within the city’s teeming centre.
