ClientGrupo Habita

Baja Club entails a 32–room lifestyle hotel for Grupo Habita located on a beautiful coastal plot in the historic centre of La Paz, Baja California Sur, Mexico. Blending old with new, the project brings together the adaptive reuse of a colonial-style villa from 1910 and the construction of a new four-story extension containing guestrooms, a spa and a rooftop sunset bar. The new build echoes the L–shaped floor plan of the villa resulting in an ensemble that loosely frames a central courtyard. Subtle nautical connotations throughout the project draw inspiration from the nearby Sea of Cortés.
