La Purificadora: for whom the bells toll in Puebla!
In the breathtaking and bejeweled colonial Puebla -city of angels- La Purificadora is another boutique hotel from Grupo Habita who brought you CONDESdf in Mexico City & Escondido in Puerto Escondido, among others. The unpronounceable word in Spanish La Purificadora (“the cleanser/purifier”) describes the original DNA of the industrial building from 1884 that houses this singular hotel. La Purificadora used to be an ice factory where the water was bottled and purified for the production of ice; hence the water and decorating theme found throughout the hotel (like it’s pool in the 3rd floor and water mirror surrounding the chef’s table at the lobby). During the extensive refurbishment process, the archeologists on site unearthed several original pieces from the building in 1884 including bottles and other pieces of glass which have been used and incorporated into La Purificadora’s overall visual & conceptual design, some of these items are recognized by the INAH (“Anthropology and History National Institute”). La Purificadora´s original factory’s name was: “Casa Latisnere”, founded by the French origin businessmen J.E. Latisnere (the remodeled building entrance still boasts the original signing). Late it was operated by the García Cano family under the name “La Superior”.
Located in the oldest part of the UNESCO´S world heritage site and next door to the church of St. Francis (“Iglesia de San Francisco”) La Purificadora hotel in Puebla is right across a shopping center, and next door to the city convention center. It also neighbors a sculpture garden and it’s only at walking distance from Puebla’s contemporary art gallery, and has wonderful view of the city from its 3rd floor rooftop terrace. Puebla is the most European of all Mexican colonial cities with its mix of architecture in renaissance, baroque and indigenous styles. Fees

The only colors are black and white sprinkled with ‘bishop’ purple accents. The materials used throughout the building are archeological stone (from the original construction), old wood (recycled for the vaulted ceilings), onyx (indigenous from Tecalli, and an especially fabricated floor tile (reminiscent of Talavera ceramic). Legorreta is well known for his extraordinary ability to understand the chosen environment and blend it with indigenous Mexican architectural traditions represented in La Purificadora by the impressive stairway that bisects the mail lobby. His intense use of light, open spaces, and water, united with his consideration for Mexican culture, simplicity, and a modern sense of design are all elements that have won him extensive national and international recognition and that are set in place at La Purificadora.
