PROJECT: Condesa DF Hotel
The Mexican Hotelier entrepreneurs, Carlos Couturier and Moises Micha of Groupo Habita, have been leading the art and hotel scene for the past 25 years in Mexico, and continue to grow their hotel portfolio, Grupo Habita with Condessa DF Hotel.
The group approached JH and Jonathan Morr to partner and develop the landmark apartment building dating back to 1928 into a 42-room hotel in Condessa and Roma’s historic neighborhood of Mexico City.
Followed by the Townhouse Hotel’s success, the team retained India Mahdavi to design the interiors of the hotel rooms, gift shop, public space, and hammam into a modern retreat, including the food and beverage outlets (sushi rooftop restaurant bar, restaurant, lobby bar and room service). The design brief was to maintain the interior courtyard space’s natural charm that connected the outdoor space within the triangular historic building.
Condessa DF Hotel ultimately, regentrified the Condessa/Roma neighborhood, and became an instant food and beverage destination for locals, business meetings, and international travelers.
Today, it remains on of Mexico City’s most stylish boutique hotel.
