The client engaged Ezequiel Farca to design the common areas of the Aragones-designed hotel building located in one of the most newest and important parts of Acapulco. The hotel, which is located adjacent a natural preserve, has amazing panoramic views of Acapulcoand its tropical hillsides. Ezequiel Farca developed a concept for the terraces, restaurant and bar that includes custom-designed sofas, chairs, benches side tables and dining tables. The interior design integrates smoothly with the architecture and the natural environment, through a series of simple forms and a clean material palette. At night the hotel takes on a whole different ambiance, illuminated playfully in vibrant color. The tents integrate the architecture via cutout windows and rectangle forms.
