La Purificadora is a boutique hotel located within an ex-water purification plant. The hotel is a wonderful combination of the existing building and new interventions, internal and external spaces and rich materiality. Re-used stone from the existing building, large timber beams, timber floor tiles and alabaster creates a refined yet rich atmosphere.
The hotels 26 room, bookstore, restaurants, bar and gym are organised around a large foyer and grand staircase which is open to the elements and covered with a white roof which extends across the outdoor roof top pool and bar area.
Designed by Mexican architects, Legorreta + Legorreta, La Purificadora is a careful balance between minimalism and comfort, luxury and austerity.
