Baja Club entails a 32–room lifestyle hotel for hotelier Grupo Habita located on a beautiful plot of coastal promenade in the historic centre of La Paz, Baja California Sur, Mexico.
Subtle nautical connotations such as the new build’s horizontal streamlining and curved bulkhead elements clad in Accoya play on the maritime context of the hotel. Accoya was also chosen for window frames, cladding, screens and handrails, as a material able to resist La Paz’ hot and dry desert climate as well as the salinity of its seafront location.
All of the Accoya elements were stained in order to match the look of the other wood species that were used for the hotel interior. Local building regulations also required a fire retardant to be applied.
