Crater Hotel, A refuge in the rock

TFG 2017 Mantiqueira Quarry – Mairiporã

The CRATER HOTEL creation had as its basic premise the harmony between natural and artificial. The recomposition of an abandoned place, which evokes emotion due to its greatness, beauty and quietness. Developing this project was an attempt of translating this feeling and making it reachable through sensorial actions.
On the claustrophobic tunnels, the freeing apertures, and the footbridges that makes us fly over the distant lake. In the light that draws its huge walls, in the forest that seduces us through its sounds and scents.
