La Purificadora Hotel

Located in the city of Puebla, Mexico, La Purificadora Hotel has colonial heritage and is registered as historical patrimony. The building used to be an ice factory where water was bottled and purified. Now fully restored as a boutique hotel, it was designed with the following facilities: 26 guestrooms, reception-shop, restaurant-bar, kitchen, ballrooms for events, patio with a 4-floor-height, meeting rooms, offices, and cave.

The facades have the same treatment as the old building, extending plaster and stone along all its height. Main materials used are: stone (from the original construction) and old wood that contrast with the contemporary materials such as glass and steel incorporated in to the new design, as well as specially designed tiles for the bedrooms floors and onyx in the restrooms. During the intense remodeling process, the archeologist found many glass pieces that belonged to the original building and were incorporated into the graphic design of the hotel.
