Hotel in Atacama Desert – 18 Jan 2012
The building consists of a low rise hotel and recreational complex. It measures 32,7m x 144,8m. Spread over three levels and dug partially into the slope it appears to float above the contour lines and is orientated to the west, parallel to the slope with views towards the Salar of Atacama. The principle theme of the project is to generate transitional spaces between outside and inside that reduce energy needs and offer a variety of different situations.

LAN Architecture – Practice Information
LAN Architecture, a Local Architecture Network, employs 20 twenty professionals (architects, designers, graphic and 3D image designers, communication and development coordinator, etc.) and works with specialised external consultants. In six years of activity, the agency’s work has developed a reputation and won competitions both in France and abroad. In 2004, LAN Architecture’s work was selected by the French Culture Minister for the ‘Nouveaux Albums des Jeunes Architectes’ (young architects award). Since then LAN has undergone a considerable increase in its activity and the scale of projects on which it works. LAN Architecture is currently working on 15 ongoing projects and developing its activity in several countries. The team projects, while respecting contextual, programmatic and site specificities continue to explore new fields and create new uses with a strong social and urban involvement. LAN Architecture was founded by Benoit Jallon and Umberto Napolitano in 2002.
Born 18th May 1972 in Grenoble (fr)
Fascinated by the body’s structure with its logical organisation, layers and strata, Benoit Jallon first turned to medical studies. However, his need for involvement and creativity soon led him to begin studying architecture. He graduated from the Villette School of Architecture in 2001 with a special mention from the jury. Curiosity and a thirst for knowledge have led him to travel widely, particularly in Italy.
Born 27th November 1975 in Naples (it)
Umberto Napolitano began his architectural studies in Italy and completed them in France at the Villette School of Architecture where he graduated in 2001 with a special mention from the jury. He rapidly developed a critical approach to the separation between theory and practice. In parallel with his architectural education, he also worked with a number of architects. His involvement in Franco-American workshops has given his work an international flavour and allowed him to absorb other cultures and skills.
