Ennismore celebrates the launch of Mondrian’s first Latin American hotel with the debut of Mondrian Mexico City Condesa. The new property makes a bold statement in the heart of the central neighborhood, drawing upon the city’s colorful flair to weave a stimulating sense of place across the urban retreat.
Ennismore’s in-house team, AIME Studios, crafted Mondrian Mexico City Condesa alongside locally based AoMa Estudio to further instill authenticity. “The main source of inspiration is Mexico City’s visual richness, centered on the emblematic Aristos Building, where modern styles, present, and contemporary proposals will meet,” says AoMa Estudio. “We wanted to bring the joy of a space full of life, movement, and history for the guests to enjoy.”
F&B options—like Mediterranean concept Cleo Condesa, vibrant alfresco lounge La Terraza, and the signature Skybar—were each designed by AoMa to offset the stone palette of the structure with a variety of textures imbued through ample greenery and artwork. “Art and the vegetation tower the main materials, showing off admirable virtues: life, singularity, shelter, peace, belonging together,” AoMa adds.
The main patio is animated with a mosaic mural recreating the Panathenaic procession religious festival, as well as a sculptural replica of José Luis Cuevas’ La Giganta.
The hotel’s 183 accommodations are each enlivened with murals by artist Ara Starck that pull inspiration from one of Mexico City’s remaining aqueducts, which is situated just blocks from the hotel. Sixteen luxury suites and two penthouses are included in the guestroom lineup, spread across the seventh and eighth floors and equipped with balconies, spacious living rooms, a full bar, and floor-to-ceiling windows that reinforce the sprawl of the cityscape.
