From the architect. Mexican architects BGP Arquitectura designed this stylish hotel in Mexico City. The glass skin acts as a buffer to the busy outside, while converting into a lamp during night. Cool pool on the roof top.

vary cool! Great use of braised glass! I would've preferred the beams be sealed a little better in the dining area. That detail is kind of a fail

In mid 90's the renderings were very rough.

It depends. Is the child cute or smart?

jesus · February 26, 2009

hey paul,coz people is wrong saying the Habita it´s an enrique norten desing, just more, an another topic, if you have a child, obviously, are you proud of him? or not?

Paul ALLEN · February 25, 2009

Hey Jesus, why do you think culture in general is so obsess with authorship. I mean, Does it really matter who is the creative man behind a project that took tens of people to achieve? Does that makes you gain more konwledge about architecture, about that building? I'm just saying...

german · February 25, 2009

the hotel is real no renderings, and yes Bernardo Gomez Pimienta is the creative mind behind TEN, hes gone solo and done some interesting stuff, but his time with Enrique was very good for modern Mexican architecture, now Enrique has been wining commissions in the US like crazy, definitely hotel habita is one of my favorites.

Render?! which one? Those are real picture

3drenderer · February 25, 2009

Those are really extraordinary renderings. Can't have been cheap :)

jesus · February 25, 2009

but it was designed for bernardo gomez almost totally when he was associated with norten. i think Bernardo is the creative man behind all norten`s projects.

ibravo · February 25, 2009

The Habita Hotel is from mr. Enrique Norten and his TEN Arquitectos right?
