Regarding the second idea, and in order to match some qualities of the context in the exterior expression of the building we used: a) materials already present in the town such as timber and corrugated steel, b) a simple volume that occupies the all site and
c) a systematic rhythm of windows. More specifically, we proposed a volume that recreates the differentiation that quiet often is seen in Puerto Natales between those front elevations that face the street and those lateral elevations that face the sides of the sites . Consequently: for street facades we used corrugated steel and for side facades we used treated pine.
With regard to the third idea, and in order to highlight the intimacy of sleeping-rooms, we generated an horizontal strata made out of pine that incorporates all usable surfaces in the room such as beds, lavatories, tables and bay windows. On the contrary, public spaces are mainly vertical spaces were a huge shutter or curtain made out eucalyptus bars is always present.
Finally it is important to mention that graphic desing was worked together with architecture. Under the concept of using some iconography already present in the area we adopted the universe of maritime container an ships in general to creates signals on the facades and the interior spaces that reminds Navimag, the only ship that every Thursday arrives to Puerto Natales bringing foods and fresh news to the deep south.
