The small 13-square-meter Invisible Portal lives up to its name with its mirrored facade. The studio placed the viewpoint on a highpoint of an Andes mountain trail that stretches between Guaranda and Babahoyo. “The number of people who visit the natural vantage point use this space as a point for meeting and to rest on the grass,” said Natura Futura, according to Dezeen.

Hikers can take a rest at the Invisible Portal, which has a small opening on the rear wall for access to the wood-lined interior. Timber steps that span the width of the interior double as seating at the edge of the structure.
