An Intriguing Shabby Chic Stay in Uruguay

115 architecture

Five-meter high factory gates and a facade of corrugated metal give an industrial-chic flair to the entrance to Casa Zinc, but inside the tall gates, it’s a different story.

Here the old facade is clad in vintage railway bricks, and has the charm of tall french doors that belie its original use.

Now the old factory building is a six bedroom hotel restored with casual flair by antique dealer Aaron Hojman as a “posada bohemia.”

Every detail is perfectly imperfect for a refined stay at the shabby-chic posada.

There is an attentive quality to the cheerfully understated restoration.

White-slathered floorboards barely bother to meet, while a table leg has aged out of its original paint.

An eclectic mix of furniture styles is loosely organized by the black and white tile floor.

Serious wooden doors have heavy industrial hinges of weathered brass.

A ceiling is simply the underside of the ancient wooden flooring upstairs.

The rustic wooden headboards, the exposed wooden rafters and the wellworn bench are all in unrelenting shades of sepia.

The palette is muted to such a degree that a stay would feel almost like inhabiting a sepia-tint photograph.

The rustic headboard and the comfort of a wooly blanket feels appropriate in this setting.

The antique dealer has found the perfect sink – deep enough for a hair wash – for the old bathroom.

What appear to be blackboards give a schoolroom air to dormitories.

The Casa Zinc is located in the quiet village of La Barra along vast stretches of deserted beaches and low headlands on the coast of Uruguay.

A stay would be a beautiful experience, taking a time-out from time.
