Have you ever wanted to be surrounded by nature and still have the luxuries of a world-class hotel? Entre Cielos in Mendoza offers exactly that, fusing an outdoor experience with cushy hotel amenities. Dubbed ‘Limited Edition’, this lofted hotel prototype is a cocoon-shaped cabin poised atop several steel columns. Designed in collaboration with Baumraum, a German architectural studio, the idea behind the project was to develop several luxury treehouse-like accommodations amidst the Argentine vineyards.
Mendoza, in the central west of Argentina sits at the feet of the majestic 6,000-metre Andes. It prides itself with a sophisticated irrigation system that has facilitated around 1,200 vineyards in the vicinity.
Perched more than five meters aboveground, the cabin can be accessed by a two-flight stairway. The semi-open interior opens into a panoramic terrace, and contains a guest bed, bathroom, desk, and minibar. The openness allows the guests to experience nature even while sitting inside the cabin. The tree hotel was designed to maximize comfort and features good shading and thermal insulation.
