    Great arquitecture and dialogue with the magnificent environment.
    Simple but strong, green and chic.
    Fernanda Vuilleumier makes a great statement that green and eco friendly arquitecture can be done with local materials and using Patagonian ancestors and innovative ways of building.
    Congratulations, great contribute to these remote places in Patagonia, hopefully other projects in this sense will come soon.
