Casa Ibarra is a Boutique Hotel located in a sixteenth century historical property, recognized by the Government of Puebla, due to its architectural value. This ambitious project which is located in the Historic Centre of the Mexican City of Puebla  in a quarter recognized by the United Nations Educational, Scientific and Cultural Organization (UNESCO) as a World Heritage Site.

The intervention focuses on developing a complex of 14 suites, a restaurant, a roof top bar, and 2 commercial premises with unique characteristics to each other, focused on the maximum respect to the built heritage. Restoring the invaluable mural paintings located in most of the spaces of the project.

The interiors are conceived to enjoy the historical elements, clearly differentiating the contemporary interventions of the ancestral spaces, obtaining an interesting contrast between the new and the historical without losing the timeless and nostalgic touch.

Double and triple height environments were created to maximize the interior sensations and to pay a respectful homage to this architectural jewel that returns to life to host a new program that meets the habitability needs of the 21st century.
