Carlos Couturier, Moisés Micha, Estudio5 design Mexico's Casa Fayette

Grupo Habita opened Casa Fayette in Guadalajara, Mexico. Located in the Lafayette neighborhood, the property has 37 rooms and suites, alongside a restaurant, bar, terrace, pool and rooftop spa.

Hoteliers Carlos Couturier and Moisés Micha, the minds behind Grupo Habita, worked with local architectural firm Estudio5 to transform the 1940s mansion into Guadalajara's first design-led hotel.

The property’s original Art Deco structure was preserved, particularly in the retro-inspired bar and restaurant that leads out to an alfresco patio with adjoining conference room and private terrace. On the second floor of the original house is a pool, bar and terrace.

An adjacent building was constructed to house Casa Fayette's rooms and suites, which are divided into six categories.

Milanese architects Dimorestudio was responsible for Casa Fayette's aesthetics, which were inspired by traditional Jaliscan design, merging with the studio's European style. The interiors use a color palette of greens and blues, accentuated with hand-blown glass lighting and locally sourced textiles and ceramics. Marble flooring, polished wood and Mackintosh-inspired glass screens were used to pay homage to the hotel's Art Deco roots.
