Design: The Singular Patagonia, Puerto Bories, Chile
If it is an extreme sense of design and architecture that fascinates you, then you'll love this hotel. Built in 1915 as a cold storage plant, today this is a certified heritage site. Adhering to strict rules of conservation of the building, the architect worked his way around all kinds of restrictions, to end with a truly stunning and innovative hotel. Iron roofs, cavernous chambers and funiculars set The Singular Patagonia apart.
