Text description provided by the architects.

The hotel is located at the entrance of “Torres del Paine” National Park, on the shore of Lake Sarmiento, one of the limits of this National Park.The water acts as a supporting plane for the splendid Paine massif. Its magnificence makes one think of an extended project in dialogue with the vast territory.The form seeks to merge with the metaphysical landscape, not to interrupt it.

The shape of the hotel is reminiscent of an old fossil, a prehistoric animal beached on the shore of the lake, not unlike those found and studied by Charles Darwin. The building is as though born out of the land, like a fold in the terrain that the wind has carved in the sand.

It is anchored to the ground with stone slopes and is completely covered in washed Lenga wood paneling. This finish gives the hotel a silvery sheen, typical of old wooden houses worn away by winter. The spatial solution aims for warm and cozy spaces structured by internal pathways, allowing the building to inhabit its extension.Category: Arquitectura territorialName: Hotel Tierra PatagoniaPoetic Name: Hotel del VientoArquitect: Cazu Zegers G.,Associated Arquitects: Rodrigo Ferrer, Roberto BenaventeColaborator: Grupo Aira Development & Management: Estudio AI (Arquitectura Integrada)Placement: Lago Sarmiento, Torres del Paine, XII Región, ChileClient: Katari S.AYear of Project: 2005 – 2006 / 2010 – 2011Year of Construction: 2011Surface: 70 haBuilded Surface: 4900 m2Construction: Salfa Corp / Juan Pablo LibacicStructural Calculation: Enzo Valladares y Asociados     Technical Inspection: Coz Cía.
