Elqui Domos Hotel by Rodrigo Duque Motta

View all 10 Photos

The transparent fabric domes of the Elqui Domos hotel connects guests easily to the beauty of nature as well as the sparkling wonders of the night sky in Chile. This small 10-year old structure designed by Rodrigo Duque Motta sits in a valley between the Andes Mountains that is known for its clear skies, good weather and its great potential for wine growing. The hotel includes several single wooden cabins with clear fabric domes and a restaurant/lobby. This existing hotel was remodeled so that the terrace becomes the main living area and so that the cabins can give more emphasis to the landscape by placing them lightly off the ground. In order to bring in views of the transient vegetation of the vast surrounding valley, the cabins were also given an inner sloped space to show the different views of the valley and the mountains through its two opposing glass walls stretched across the cabin.
