Hostal La Buena Vida (The Good Life Hostel) is located on Mazatlán Street in Condesa, Mexico City. This neighborhood has an homogeneous architectural style and the objective was to stand out, ARCO Arquitectura Contemporanea´s team proposed the use of a double skin on the facade —to reduce the street noise— full with color and texture that makes the hostel an eye catcher from any point in the street, always respecting rules and regulations as well as the proportions of the adjacent buildings. Attractive geometric shapes on the façade in an intrepid combination of different shades of magenta —also known as Mexican Pink—move in an architectonic allegory that evokes the Mexican style candy wrappers, and is complemented with the serenity and warmth of the Ipe wood lattice.
