Here at our Boston architecture and design firm, we create a wide variety of spaces, both public and private. We have worked on institutional and commercial projects that require common areas, work space, and other accommodations, as well as residential projects ranging from private homes to senior living facilities. Hotels are an interesting subject for an architect, because they combine the public and private spheres.
We always love finding new examples of unique architecture, and this creative hotel recently featured in Architectural Record is no exception. Hotel Endémico is a newly minted resort featuring 20 Modernist cabins arrayed across a rustic landscape in Mexico’s Valle de Guadalupe.
Likened to the old days of the Napa Valley, the Baja wine country is a gorgeous spectacle of flowering shrubs, boulders, and desert wildlife. The project’s architect, Jorge Gracia, says, “I conceptualized them as camping tents with all the comforts of a luxury hotel. They’re sealed boxes in this aggressive nature.” In addition to the cabins, the resort also includes vineyards, a wine production facility, and eventually, a tasting room and restaurant.
