Concept

Hotel Centro Guadalajara Guadalajara Hotel Hotel Centro

The project proposal for Hotel Centro harnesses the strategic location of the hotel estate by proposing a dynamic oblique opening that cuts through the building mass, and is oriented towards the cathedral plaza. This urban gesture enables every hotel room to have a view of the cathedral and plaza. Our goal was to devise an alternative to a utilitarian interior patio, and instead of interior facing rooms, enable constant dialogue between hotel spaces and cathedral plaza; bringing the public space into the hotel as well as extending out onto it.

Façade

Hotel Centro Guadalajara Guadalajara Hotel Hotel Centro

The façade is conceived as an element that wraps all the hotel programmed spaces in a striated masonry envelope, from which window-like elements peel off to further orient views and dialogue with the cathedral plaza. The material selected for the masonry exterior is a local sandstone that dialogues with the rich cream and earth colors of the surrounding building.
