Text description provided by the architects. The project is situated in the border of Queulat National Park in Patagonia 3 hours away from Cohiaique, which is the nearest city. This compromised the material and construction logistics decisions to secure its construction quality and ageing because of tough climate conditions.

The project was built in 4 months. The process consists of bottled glacial water. The building that contains the process is a box 18 by 18 meters and 6 meters high. The four facades are clad in toughened glass with a black opaque coating with a tapered soil base.

Because of the climatic conditions, glass offered a good skin solution plus the reflections of the surroundings as ornament, and the steel structure which is bolted to ensure recycling as much as possible. The near by river during winter season floods the area so the 1.5 meter tapered base offers the necessary protection with out compromising the building.
