Carlos Couturier & Moises Micha

The Power of Passion

Going from citrus farming and investment banking to owning a growing portfolio of boutique hotels in New York, Mexico, and Chicago, Carlos Couturier and Moises Micha were always motivated, experimental, and business-savvy.

Carlos Couturier and Moises Micha own eleven hotels in Mexico, one each in Manhattan and Chicago, and they are almost always on the move. For this duo of Mexican entrepreneurs—who were honored with the ‘Team of the Year 2011’ award by FIZZZ Magazine—building hotels that reflect their surroundings is a passion that drives their every move.

We use a local team every time we build a hotel, and we read the surroundings and their traditions to integrate the local culture into our project.

They met during university and quickly became friends, ending up joining forces in the real estate business. The transformation to building a hotel collection focused on art and design came naturally; both are avid art collectors and active in the Mexican art community. Couturier and Micha are passionately committed to investing in the regions in which they build their hotels, from Mexico to the United States. “We use a local team every time we build a hotel, and we read the surroundings and their traditions to integrate the local culture into our project,” Couturier explains. Both are naturally very mobile, jet-setting from one art fair and hotel to the next, but without ever losing track of home and their families.

Certain rituals, such as Friday dinners with the family in Mexico City, are important to Micha, who is single and lives in an apartment within their hotel Distrito Capital. Their newest project, The Robey, captures the storied spirit of Chicago—a bustling, ever-changing city, and stands out as one of the neighborhood’s most distinguishable landmarks thanks to its triangular prism shape. With the success of their friendship and partnership spilling over into their brand Grupo Habita, it is sure to make its mark on the Windy City.
