In 2009, the new owners together with a team of architects from Yucatan began the process of restoration and adaptation of the ruins that would turn Casa Lecanda into a conceptual hotel with the main objective of maintaining all the authenticity of the house using original materials and elements of the home. This process restored most of the original carpentry, clay floors and finishes with all the comforts of a luxurious and contemporary hotel.
The house is lived in the three different patios connected by the exterior gardens that run the length of the property. The first patio has a fountain surrounded by plants and palm trees, all enclosed in an original stone floor design.
The complete concept uses a palette of light colors to increase the effect of solar lighting in the interior areas.
The prominence of the details in its floors based on tiles in paste and stone, as well as the extensive use of wood in carpentry and furniture, contribute to having warm and human areas, the use of terraces such as solariums, balconies and gardens, double the open space of the house The authentic high ceilings and thick walls are softened by the poetic use of architecture and lighting to create a cozy and relaxing atmosphere. Most of the lighting, interior design and furniture take as reference the typical elements of Merida with a contemporary flare, all of which are elaborated by expert local craftsmen so that they integrate perfectly with the natural environment of the home.
