The recovered interior courtyard serves as an open lobby/reception area, creating a visual connection from the main entrance of the hotel 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 in Quito. 

Architecture

VERONICA REED

The building maintains its two original levels, with an elevated deck added to the terrace level. Accessible through a modern steel staircase connecting the terrace and the wine cellar, the terrace provides 360-degree unobstructed views of the historic district. Veronica Reed, co-founder of VIVA Arquitectura and Sustainable Design Studio, ensured that the structure’s existing earth-and-brick load-bearing walls were all reinforced, maintaining the house’s original spatial distribution.

INTERIOR DESIGN

COLOR, TEXTURE, TIME

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.
