The DNA: Located on a breathtaking coastal boardwalk in La Paz – Baja California Sur’s capital, a city brimming with history – Grupo Habita have completed their 14th project, the brand renowned for ‘leading a design revolution in Mexico’s hospitality industry since 2000′ having opened Baja Club, a 32-roomed hotel housed in an early 20th century, bringing desert chic to the handsome Mexican city. An adaptive reuse project, an elegant four-storey extension was added, as well as a pool and spa, restaurant and hip rooftop bar. Carlos Couturier and Moisés Micha (the talented duo behind the Habita chain) drew nautical inspiration from the coastline when brainstorming the idea; the architects taking cues from the country’s rich tradition of colours, textures, and craftsmanship to create spaces defined by the green and red tones common to Mexican earthenware and woven materials.
