Hotel Carlota

The starting point of this project was an urban-archeological work. We found a building in complete decadence, formerly called Hotel Jardín Amazonas. We found a couple of images from its splendorous times that caught our attention, mainly by the central courtyard, that figured an oasis within the city. Nothing remained from that hotel apart from the typical structure of a motel, with exterior corridors and balconies above the courtyard, as well as countless layers of coverings, aggregates, stairs, ceilings and patches, as we commonly call them between architects. Today the hotel has 36 rooms, each with a special touch.
