Elqui Domo by Rodrigo Duque Motta

By Inthralld on Jul 03, 2012

Architects Rodrigo Duque Motta are behind the 2011 renovation of a small site called ‘Elqui Domo’ with a few cabin style hotel rooms in the Valle Del Elqui in Chile. The land that the project is situated on is in between the Andes Mountains, making for some amazing weather and night sky views for astronomy.

So the latest designs in cabins feature fabric domes that have unique roof hatches to enable the guests to watch the stars from the comfort of their room. The renewed rooms  have a great play on the textiles used, and they feel light, bright, and airy.

Each cabin is multi-tiered, allowing the vacationers to feel as if there are differentiating spaces within the one small space and still keep things specially unique.

Roof decks make the cabins that much more personalized and true to the surrounding nature and landscape, all while keeping guests interested and maximizing their vertical space.
