Mountain Refuge Los Canteros by dRN Architects
This contemporary mountain refuge in the Chilean ski region Farellones was realised by the Santiago based practice dRN Architects. Bound on two sides by magnificent old containment stone walls the simple stone cube is broken up by other elements that overhang from its perimeter, modifying the basic figure and giving it an orientation towards the valley.

Chalets are a type of wooden houses in the Alpine region, traditionally with a sloping roof and widely overhanging eaves. The Geneva based architectural practice of Charles Pictet realised this modern chalet at Les Diablerets, a mountain range in the western Swiss Alpes.
