Contemporary Hotel Basico, Mexico
Central de Arquitectura a Mexico City-based design studio has completed Hotel Básico. The chic hotel was completed in 2005 and can be found in Playa del Carmen, Quintana Roo, Mexico.
The luxury Mexican hotel is located in Playa del Carmen in one of the corners of La Quinta Avenida – the main avenue of the city – and it´s integrated also by six commercial locals on the street level and 15 bedrooms in the first and second level. It is known for its unique architectonic design and bold use of materials.
At the entrance, the users go through a spectacular 14 meters high lobby, dominated by an 18 meters long apparent concrete wall. This amazing lobby connects all the architectonic elements of the project. Horizontally, you can find the stairs and the access, and vertically, the whole structure is unified.
Conceptually, the contemporary Mexican hotel is an exercise of combination and appliance of recycled materials through minimalist parameters. The materials and installations are used and placed in a way to show its essence and purpose.
