Guatape, Colombia
  • Architects: G Ateliers

Text description provided by the architects. The project is located in Guatapé- Antioquia, a place with natural potential for ecological tourism development just two hours from Medellín.

The design acknowledges the natural beauty of the site to create 8 ecological shelters that care to minimize the impact on the site and achieve a delicate fusion of architecture and place. These shelters emerge from the topography and enhance the surrounding nature without competing with it. Corridors at the perimeter, traditional elements from the Colombian dwelling architecture are introduced to achieve a clear relationship between interior and exterior.

The green roofs provide spaces for outdoors activities while the wood covered walls generate a warm and cozy atmosphere at the interior.
