    Rooms 26 / Architecture Ricardo Legorreta, Victor Legorreta / Interior Design Serrano Monjaraz Arquitectos / The Original Carlos Couturier, Micha Moisés

    Located in the historic center of Puebla, a colonial city on the road between Mexico City and Veracruz, La Purificadora is the new incarnation of a late 19th-century factory long used to purify water. The tradition of purity is still the guiding leitmotif at this minimalist yet modern and edgy hotel designed by Legorreta + Legorreta, the sixth by Mexico's trend-setting Grupo Habita. The retention of many of the building's original elements, including crumbling walls and stone aqueducts, lends La Purificadora an air of authenticity, while modern juxtapositions like a glass-walled swimming pool and sleek purple lounge chairs create a clean, sophisticated ambience. The resulting mix of new and old is truly stunning. Most of the hotel's 26 guestrooms—including three suites with private whirlpools—offer spectacular views of the hotel gardens and the city center beyond, a UNESCO World Heritage Site.

    Architecture

    Legorreta + Legorreta

    Famous for his use of bright colors, natural light, and thick walls, renowned Mexican architect Ricardo Legorreta took on the La Purificadoraas a challenge. Limiting himself entirely to the colors black and white, he used materials like stone from the original construction, old wood, onyx, and specially fabricated floor tile in creating the hotel’s public spaces, which includes a stunning stairway and a roof terrace with an artist-rendered 30-meter pool. As would be expected from the always boundary-breaking Habita hotel group, La Purificadora offers travelers and locals alike a comforting yet always stimulating experience—a mix of tradition and contemporary flavor in its purest form. 

    Interior Design

    Redefined Purity

    Elements found by an onsite archaeologist, such as bottles and glass fragments, are incorporated into the hotel’s construction and graphic design, which is a striking yet functional mix of the past and present, of the raw and the refined.

    Carlos Couturier & Moises Micha

    For Carlos Couturier and Moises Micha, building hotels that reflect their surroundings is more than just a job—it’s a passion that drove these two Mexican entrepreneurs from citrus farming and investment banking to boutique hospitality. “Even if we’re successful at something, we don’t repeat it,” Couturier says. “We like this sense of passion and audacity.” Their Grupo Habita collection has grown to include 12 diverse properties. Ambitious, fun-loving and well-traveled, the dynamic duo was awarded ‘Team of the Year 2011’ by FIZZZ Magazine.
