From the architect. The hotel is located at the northern entrance of Torres del Paine National Park, on the shores of Lake Sarmiento. The place has a great magnitude compared to the vastness of Patagonia Austral. These features connect the project to the magnitude of the territory.

Moreover, ecotourism is the experience of nature. Modern man is not equipped to live in the open air without protection, which is why the building should be like a second skin, allowing to experience the power and beauty of this mystical place. The territory is like a body, in the head is located the Paine massif, the arms are geographical landmarks that define the boundaries of the lake, the legs are the way to access the site and in the heart you find the hotel.

The building shape emerges from the wind, natural element which is characteristic of the zone. The form seeks to join the metaphysical landscape of the place. The hotel’s image looks like an ancient fossil of a prehistoric animal, stranded on the shore of the lake. The hotel is anchored to the ground with stone embankments and entirely coated with wood paneling of washed lenga, in order to get the silver color which is common of wood corroded by water.

La solución espacial busca el abrigo y la pequeña escala, esta se estructura a partir The space is structured from the interior routes, which are the way of inhabiting this extension. In the bedroom`s area the path is made with bridges suspended over the void.

The land where the hotel is located belongs to a family of settlers of the region, so the interior architecture seeks the experience of inhabiting the hotel as the home of the owners and not as an international hotel.
