The hotel is located on the southern part of the port city – Antofagasta that lies in the Atacama Desert, which is among the Earth's driest regions. The pre-painted copper facades last long and look great to convey its inherent noble, durable qualities, and further to establish a historical connection with the local context that Antogagasta was formerly known as the main copper port of Chile. Also worth mentioning, the copper facades go through three kinds of oxidation treatments to lend a unique stained sheen to the surface presence, thus bringing out a distinctive industrial appeal of facades, building a relationship between past and present, accentuating the historically- and culturally-textured context of the surroundings.
