The Original Alberto Laposse

San Miguel de Allende’s own history was a powerful guiding hand throughout the process, and Laposse turned often to local artisans and craftsmen as a way to honor local history. He and fellow architect Germán Velasco aimed to create a space that takes everything into account: materials, lighting, design, and furnishings—resulting in a fully immersive aesthetic environment. 

ARCHITECTURE

ALBERTO LAPOSSE

When architect and entrepreneur Alberto Laposse purchased two 18th-century buildings in 2004, he knew he wanted to fuse them into a great house with respect for its history. The contrast of neo-classical colonial style with a sophisticated contemporary design aesthetic required a painstaking attention to detail.

INTERIOR DESIGN

Germán Velasco

In 2014, renowned Mexican architect Germán Velasco teamed up with Alberto Laposse to remodel Dos Casas. Inspired by the buildings themselves, Velasco made reference to the colonial era, when San Miguel de Allende was famed for its rich repositories of gold, stone, wood, and leather, which still characterize local aesthetics.

Dos Casas’ interior design juxtaposes those materials with mid-century modern furniture, such as Mies van der Rohe's Barcelona chair, and bright, bold pieces of art—mostly from Latin America. Luxury amenities, like 400-thread-count cotton linens and marble baths with rain showers, complete the unparalleled ensemble.
