Travel opens up new perspectives, to see life with new eyes.

This Hotel invites travellers to stop wandering, and make a fruitful pause. Life, dispersed in Atacama’s vastness, is somehow present at the hotel, inviting visitors to go out and experience first hand its natural and cultural riches, and return every evening back to comfort, free of the sheer tasks of survival.

Hotel Residence in Atacama, Northern Chile by LAN Architecture

Extreme is the word that keeps coming back on the table at the time of the study.  Extreme but necessary is the choice to implement life and activity in the region.  Extreme is the site, the climate, the drought, the light, the horizontal dimension of the territory.  Extreme is also the way the place will be used: without schedule, without rules, without connection to the site, lost in the middle of the desert.  Extreme is the fact that once there, there is no alternative but to live in this very hotel.  Extreme is also the time given to draw a project that embraces all the factors.
