Hbita-MTY hotel in Monterrey wins Wallpaper's 2010 Design Awards

The Habita group's Habita-MTY in Monterrey hotel won Wallpaper's 2010 Design Awards for best hotel... No suprise there!

Monterrey has never been exactly a tourist destination: foreigners go there on business, as this is the country's steel capital. Budding talent Joseph Dirand (the French architect who designed the summer house of no other than the master Phillippe Starck) is the man who created the look of the hotel, from its arc-shaped façade to the interior décor filled with  onyx and skulls.
