The architecture of Albor Hotel in San Miguel de Allende effortlessly integrates with the surrounding natural environment. The hotel emerges naturally from the terrain, framing a beautiful view of the valley. The hotel’s stone base is inspired by the mountain’s interior, featuring a textured and colorful appearance.
The lower levels of the hotel feature a range of purple hues, typical of the local stone, creating a vibrant and dynamic contrast with the natural surroundings. The upper levels of the hotel have a minimalistic design, with clear separation between the public and private areas.
The hotel’s interior features large sculptural ceramic pieces inspired by the local flora, which create a visually stunning display that guides guests through the space and highlights the natural surroundings. The pieces, which are artisanally crafted by the company Latitude, are suspended in space and adorned with intricate graphic interventions created by the Mexican artist Omar Barquet.
The private rooms, located on the three upper levels of the hotel, maintain a natural and minimalistic style, similar to the public areas. The rooms feature a natural color palette and materials such as mineral clay, local crafts, wooden furniture, and natural fabrics, providing a cozy and inviting atmosphere for guests.
The hotel’s stone base accommodates the public spaces, which blend seamlessly with the surrounding landscape and offer unparalleled views of the city.
