Casa Fayette is the newest hotel memeber of Grupo HABITA aka. Carlos Couturier and Moisés Micha. Located in the Lafayette neighborhood of Guadalajara, Mexico, the recently opened Casa Fayette seamlessly blends a newly designed tower space with an early 1940s mansion to become a 37-room hotel that blends tradition with classical European details. Estudio5 transformed the original Art Deco structure, which houses the hotel’s common spaces, including the library, restaurant, and upper level pool and bar. The brand-new tower holds the guest rooms, patio, and multi-purpose event spaces. Helping to integrate the new construction with the original facade, Estudio5 used a mix of concrete, steel, and drywall, along with finishes in iron, marble, wood, brass, various types of glass, and cement tiles for the floors. The Milan-based firm Dimorestudio took over the interior where they used both warm and cool color palettes that featured burgundy, salmon, and artichoke, which reference the colorful aesthetics of its location. The Art Deco-inspired spaces offer a “global eclecticism” meant to represent the ongoing changes in the hotel’s neighborhood. The rooms are defined by a soothing color palette of greens and blues, with panels of Mackintosh-inspired glass screens, polished marble floors, and highly polished wood, all paying homage to the Art Deco style. Objects created by historical design masters live together with reclaimed materials and other “bespoke” objects—such as the green wicker chairs on the patio, which were inspired by traditional Mexican “equipales”—to create and forge a timeless visual and emotional pathway throughout Casa Fayette.
If you are heading to Mexico be sure to check this place out and stay a night or two!
