Text description provided by the architects.

The main position when faced with a commission to develop an accommodation project in places far from urban centers, is to seek to generate the unique experience in the act of living. Through architecture and its positioning within the natural environment, provoke situations that allow the context to be perceived as an immeasurable spectacle of nature.

In this work, it was necessary to detect a position within the estate that would allow us to perceive the attractiveness of the confluence of the Futaleufú and Espolón rivers, thus defining the location of the lodge on some cliffs that would allow the reading of the macro landscape with distant views that encompassed the entire Valley.

In this sense, the fan positioning of the program is adapting to the topography, embedding the small volumes of services in the cliffs and proposing an appropriation of that environment that stimulates the entry of the landscape into the units. The order of the premises is presented according to the views determining the circulations towards the back to connect the rooms and living spaces between them, generating a great viewpoint towards the valley.

On the other hand, the main body that contains the common services and the boxes of the rooms stands out through an intentional contrast, resolved with a simple and pure language, but with an envelope of wooden tiles that directly allude to a traditional local tectonics.
