The library shelves lining the lobby of Distrito Capital, in the high-rise Santa Fe district, lend precise insight into Parisian designer Joseph Dirand‘s core principles. Volumes on contemporary art and urban architecture abound, as do modern artworks like a light installation by Thomas Glassford. Distrito’s double-height ceilings and panoramic views complement the luxurious attitude of its decor, which takes its midcentury inspiration to a highly modern plane with sleek monochrome tones. A dip in the luminous infinity pool is best followed by a cocktail at the chic terrace bar. Book well in advance, as the hotel’s 30 rooms fill up quickly.
