Outline

Fasano Las Piedras is a hospitality complex in Punta del Este, Uruguay. It combines hotel bungalows and amenities (pool, spa, etc) spreading across 480 hectares dominated by a dramatic and dazzling landscape, arid, rocky, with sparse low vegetation. The detailed study of the program led us to resort to scattering the units making up the complex, conceived and distributed as isolated modules that landed naturally on the terrain, such as the rocks themselves, a solution intended at preventing the erection of massive buildings or volumes that might excessively interfere with the landscape.

Evaluation

This resort facility, set in the heart of the dry, rocky Uruguay landscape, features bungalows, spas and other amenities. The buildings and various other facilities seem to melt into the surrounding scenery so that they look almost like nests. The architecture is low and understated, giving precedence to the ambient topography, and the only materials used in construction are timber and concrete dotted with natural rock. Visitors to this spot must think they have been thrown right into the heart of the natural world and feel themselves to be at one with the environment. We would like to visit Fasano Las Piedras one day!
