The Exe Bacatá 95 Hotel is placed in El Chicó district, one of the most distinguished areas in Bogotá. It is located in the middle of the commercial area of the city, an area surrounded by international food restaurants, cafés and shopping centers.
The building, property of BD Promotores Colombia, possesses a contemporary and functional style. Moreover, it has the last technology devices and innovations implemented. Its eight floors contain cafeteria service, an air-conditioned swimming pool, gymnasium, a business center and parking.
The culture of the Kogui, a native pre-Columbian village, inspired the architects team of Exe Bacatá 95 Bogotá Hotel to develop the project design. The apology for the Mother Nature, so characteristic of this native village, was decisive to design a ventilated façade multiformat with fastened joint and a design inspired in a slate particular from the region.
The façade was built with ceramic materials from Keraben Group, in particular the collection Pizarra of Metropol, all black coloured. This collection is capable to give dynamism and style to the building due to the combination of large and lengthened formats.
The origin of this collection is the reproduction of the natural slate, with a noticeable relief. Besides, thanks to the porcelanic materials properties, it emerges as a perfect choice in this kind of projects.
The Exe Bacatá 95 indoors style is all about the world view of the Kogui, the inhabitants of Sierra Nevada de Santa María. In Kogui’s culture, all exists in a calm, peaceful and spiritual atmosphere. The design of the hotel breathes this harmony and it exposes the faint textures evocated from the mountains and the classic tones of these lands: crema, chocolate, café.
