Have you seen these photos of the American Trade Hotel, in Panama, the latest outpost of the über cool Ace Hotel group? It opened this fall in Panama city, occupying a restored landmark building in Casco Viejo. Designed by the award winning in house creative team Atelier Ace in collaboration with Commune Design, the design harks back to Panama’s colonial roots.
The American Trade Hotel takes its name from the building it occupies. Built in 1917 and designed by Leonardo Villanueva Meyer, a leading local architect at the time, the building housed the American Trade Developing Company, a department store at ground level, as well as modern apartments above.
Lovely isn’t it? Adding it to the wish list.
