This project for a boutique hotel near Puerto Maldonado in the Peruvian Amazon consists of two blocks of guest suites and a social space containing the restaurant and other shared facilities. The landscaped hotel grounds – that also feature a swimming pool and a boat launch – are located on the banks of the Tambopata River, nestled against the dense forest of a protected nature reserve. Guest rooms are housed in three-story volumes with pitched roofs that provide commanding views of the river and forest. These structures are elevated above the ground on pilotis to provide greater airflow, a cooling strategy that is found across vernacular architecture in the Amazon. The central open space housing the restaurant is cooled using open slats along the façade. Locally sourced stone and wood were used in construction, accentuating the connection between the built project and its natural surroundings.
