Located in the breathtaking and almost surreal Torres del Paine mountain range in Chile, the Awasi Patagonia eco-resort, designed by Felipe Assadi Arquitectos, is a true response to local culture, the surrounding environment and for the intended audience.
Inspired by the traditional huts of the region and created using local materials, each lodge is a modern reflection of life in Patagonia. Each lodges’ location (twelve in total) has been designed to ensure maximum privacy while maintain the incredible vistas of the mountains beyond. Set against the soft, grassy landscape the black framing of the lodges creates a subtle architectural graphic and provides the necessary support for the timber cladding. Internally, the all timber interior is softened by relaxed upholstery in soft colours and textures and always with a focus to THAT view.
