Carlota Inner in Quito

Architecture Veronica Reed

Set in a turn-of-the-century building, Carlota has been transformed from a residence to a gathering point for creatives.

The terrace provides 360-degree views of the historic district, while the interior courtyard serves as an open lobby/reception area, creating a visual connection from the main entrance to the back patio, which itself presents a well-preserved stone staircase and a beautiful planted backdrop that is inspired by the traditional Spanish gardens of Quito.

Interior design Veronica Reed, VIVA Arquitectura, Sustainable Design Studio

Carlota’s interior design complements subtle architectural intervention, with geometrical patterns and color palettes...

unique to each room, creating a modern ambiance within a historical shell. Each bathroom presents its own tile design, which matches the patterns of the room and evokes a more elegant era. The colors in the guestrooms were selected to reflect the variety of the tones found among the birds in Quito, thus connecting the property to the magnificent flora and fauna that surrounds it.

“We had to find a point at which the architecture and design could meet. We did that through color.”
