Hotel Kirkenes / Sami Rintala The hotel has a single room, a double room and a lobby. The project was constructed in ten days with an economic budget. It is a totally wooden structure standing on a lightweight brick fundament.

The house is anchored to the pier rocks to match with the rough weather conditions prevailing at the site (read more…)

Indigo Patagonia Hotel / Sebastian Irarrazaval Indigo Patagonia Hotel is situated along the maritime passage of Puerto Natales, entrance to the Torres del Paine National Park.
