COLONIAL MEETS INDUSTRIAL MODERN

One of the many things Mexico City is known for is for its modern and innovative architecture. But this colonial revival stunner is also a sight to be seen. Located in ‘El Zocalo’ right in the city center, the beautiful Downtown Mexico Hotel merges the magnificent Mexican colonial style with a contemporary and industrial vibe. The new, modern identity and character of the boutique hotel was conceived and designed by Cherem Serrano Arquitectos. I'm amazed how brilliantly they incorporated such a basic material as Mexican red bricks to create sculptural dividers in the guest rooms and also as protagonist in other areas of the hotel. I love the whole juxtaposition of the old and new!
