This new hotel designed by Isay Weinfield speaks to my soul. I want to go here so bad. It is sited in a dramatic and dazzling landscape; arid, rocky, with sparse low vegetation. The scenery inspired the previous owner to erect, with the rocks found in the area, his home and an annex. Upon arrival on site for the first time, the architecture team determined that the original buildings which were rustic and of unique workmanship – should be preserved.
Those building have now been converted to the reception and bar of the hotel. Now I think the challenge will be to complete the rest of project (which will include private homes, hotel bungalows and other amenities) in a similarly sensitive manner, because this landscape is awesome, and should undoubtedly be preserved.
The place is called Las Piedras Fasano located in Punta del Este, Uruguay. It is 480 hectares and had 3-km of beach stretch on the riverside of Arroyo Maldonado. The landscape is dramatic, rocky and rugged.
