The small Chilean town of Puerto Natales is home to the impressive new 28-bedroom Hotel Indigo by architect Sebastian Iriarrázaval.

ANALYSIS, Projects

Conceived by its three owners: Chilean climber and publicist Hernán Jofré; Spanish chemical engineer Ana Ibanez; and Frenchman Olivier Potart, the hotel is a clear homage to its wild Patagonian surroundings.

Iriarrázaval has come up with a six-storey hotel of minimalist Northern European style with an interior that mixes wood, slate and iron. The rooms are distributed around a central space and divided by a vertical curtain of eucalyptus. Access throughout the hotel comes in the form of ramps, bridges and staircases.

Ana Ibanez's interior design adds a touch of warmth with hammocks and cosy sofas, while the presence of vast windows allows the residents to experience Patagonia's impressive landscape from the warmth inside.
