Hotel Deseo

Hotel Deseo Central de Arquitectura

El Deseo is located in Playa del Carmen, Mexico, a small Caribbean village where fun and relaxation come together. The general idea of this project is to combine these two activities in the same place. The building revolves around a main patio where the public areas dominate. This patio offers a variety of activities and atmospheres, a spatial trace of sensations, platforms, textures, liquid and sky.
With the idea of combining architecture and plastic art, we requested Silvia Grunner, a local artist, to make an intervention in the pool (recalling gesamtkunstwerk), which reads “away from you”. The façade is composed by a wood skin that works as filter and threshold between the patio and the rooms. The main stairs recall those of the prehispanic Mayan culture and invite you to an unknown environment until reaching the central patio. The rooms pretend to segregate the border of any disturbance from the city, offering a clean, sober and elegant space.
