Located in the city of Puebla and belonging to the Master Plan “Paseo San Francisco”, the Boutique Hotel has colonial heritage and is registered as historical patrimony, which must be respected and included as part of the new design project. The building used to be an ice factory where the water was bottled and purified.

Taking this into consideration, the Boutique hotel also called “Hotel La Purificadora” was designed with the following facilities: 26 guestrooms, reception-shop, restaurant-bar, kitchen, ballrooms for events, patio with a 4-floor-height, meeting rooms, offices, and cave.

The amenities include a pool, terrace for events, gym, jacuzzi, massage and a steam room.

The project consists of a large lateral patio which is surrounded by a L-shape building in each level: on the ground floor, working as a living room, it is a prolongation of the height of the restaurant-bar and the reception-shop; in 2nd and 3rd floor, it is an empty space that separate the circulations from the rooms and on the 4th floor limiting the amenities zone. The height of the patio is partially covered by a rooftop.
The facades have the same treatment as the old building, extending plaster and stone along all its height. Main materials used are: stone (from the original construction) and old wood that contrast with the contemporary materials such as glass and steel incorporated in to the new design, as well as specially designed tiles for the bedrooms floors and onyx in the restrooms.

During the intense remodeling process, the archeologist found many glass pieces that belonged to the original building and were incorporated as La Purificadora’s graphic design.
