La Purificadora, Puebla

2 of 12

The 26-room La Purificadora in Puebla’s historic city center has clear echoes
of its past as a 19th-century water-bottling facility—nowhere more
so than in its stunning open-air lobby. Renowned Mexican architect Ricardo
Legorreta kept a portion of the original façade intact (including a masonry
stone wall and arched gate) and fashioned a dramatic black volcanic stone
staircase with a stream of water running down its middle. Legorreta also
celebrates Puebla’s Catholic heritage: the sofas are a bold bishop purple.
