HOTEL CRIOL - SANTIAGO DE QUERÉTARO, MEXICO

Jorge Degetau Sada / Hoteles Calle Uno / Miguel Concha Arquitectura
Winners

Hotel Criol, with architecture and design by Miguel Concha Arquitectura, is a project divided into three main areas: courtyard, underground library and patio. Design reinterprets the historic heritage of Queretaro using local materials and techniques. Judges appreciated the unassuming entry that precedes a wonderful series of spaces: “You have no idea what the hotel is about upon approach, and the journey happens through spaces where location and context is the foundation.”
