This project is an homage to the Botanical Garden, a true gem in the heart of the city.
The parks of Palermo represent the largest green oasis in Buenos Aires. Throughout its 370 hectares of extension, different species of flora form small forests and walks.
In spring, the jacaranda trees cover the park with their lavender flowers, and the eucalyptus trees and lindens perfume the environment with their scent.
The Botanist evokes these scenes of calm through the implementation of a giant wallpaper and dry flower bouquets in every room. In addition, it uses a nude palette and noble materials in sophisticated furniture. The goal: to make guests feel embraced by nature.
The petit Hotel is developed in a typical “Chorizo house”, inhabited by immigrants in the 1850s, which has a rectangular layout with a large outdoor patio on one side. The square rooms are centered around this patio and they are accessed through a galeria.
