Designed by al bordE and Pascual Gangotena for painter Iñigo Salvador, this remote atelier allows Iñigo to better connect with the environment thanks to a 360 degree view of the surrounding landscape. The atelier serves as a place for inspiration, meditation, and a workshop for creating beautiful paintings.

Comprised of a workshop below created from stonewalls and rammed earth, the space naturally heats itself by capturing the sun's energy and storing it between air gap in the walls. The upper box is a greenhouse, comprised of glass and local sustainable wood.

Located in rural Machachi, it sits at 3,500 meters above sea level allowing for a beautiful view of the surrounding valley.
