Architecture Alberto Kalach – Taller de Arquitectura X (TAX)

With Brutalist-inspired structures and open spaces, Alberto Kalach and his TAX lab have created a world that’s both timeless and uniquely modern.

For inspiration, Kalach envisioned how aliens might reimagine a hotel on Earth. Through this lens, he gained a fresh perspective on the fundamentals and was able to consider each detail with wonder. The result is a fresh, bold design that evokes, to some, the pre-Hispanic and, to others, something otherworldly. Built with construction materials that are sourced from within one kilometer of the hotel or created on property, Terrestre adheres to a stringent “raw materiality” mentality. From the orientation of the buildings to the design of the energy system, every ray of light is received and leveraged—the hotel runs on 100 percent solar power.

The independent villas, each with two terraces, an outdoor shower, and a private pool, invite the outside world in.

Integrating a connection with nature and an experience of space, Hotel Terrestre is a place to turn inward and upward. The 14 villas each offer a ground-floor garden, an outdoor bathroom, and an upstairs terrace with a private pool and lounge area. Throughout the interiors, guests are invited to admire the elements, perfectly framed by skylights and vast windows.

Well-being Solar retreat

The spa inspires guests to fully connect with the Earth the sun.

Hotel Terrestre sees the sun as an invitation to introspection and renewal. The spa, with its various pools, steam room, and soothing relaxation area, is inspired by this concept.

Destination Building community

With the addition of Hotel Terrestre, Grupo Habita enriches a community that includes Casa Wabi and Hotel Escondido.

Puerto Escondido is a coastal town tucked between the Pacific Ocean and the Sierra Madre del Sur mountain range. Now home to Casa Wabi—the Tadao Ando-designed artists’ retreat—and Grupo Habita’s Hotel Terrestre and Hotel Escondido, this stretch of coast is a beacon of high design.
