Hotel Remota by Germàn del Sol

Remota describes itself as "a hotel, so, so far away, hard enough to reach that you have to deserve it." It's an unusual marketing strategy for an unusual building. Designed by Chilean architect Germàn del Sol, the hotel is located in a fishing town in Patagonia, where the modern building reflects and alters the isolated landscape.

The roof is covered in grass, much like the field surrounding the building, and the structure is made of wood, asphalt, slate, and glass. The interiors are architecturally intriguing, but furnished simply with woven rugs, minimal beds, and basic white bedding. Gorgeous views are framed by slanted windows that chop up the horizon line into clipped patterns. It's a beautiful and challenging building that, to quote the hotel's elusive marketing materials, "is an invitation to stop and meditate on the experience."
