Hotel Boutique La Purificadora, designed by LEGORRETA + LEGORRETA, is located in Puebla, Mexico. Situated opposite the historic Church of San Francisco, the hotel is housed in a former ice factory, originally constructed during the 1800’s. Its design is dictated by the incorporation of modern amenities into an historic building. Much of the original structure remains, including monolithic stone walls and repurposed wood flooring. The massive structure was divided into private rooms elevated above open-air public spaces. The rooms each have a glass-enclosed balcony cut into the façade of the original walls. The public spaces include a large central courtyard and fireplace, a restaurant, and glass-sided lap pool. The hotel’s furnishings are minimal and modern, with bright colors and transparent materials complementing the rustic aesthetic of the original building.
