Compromised with the Environment
Sustainability – Architecture and Infrastructure
The person in charge for the design of Remota Patagonia Lodge was the famous architect Germán del Sol, National Prize of Architecture and one of the most recognized architects of Chile and who has the most experience in the development of ecologic and remote hotels in Chile. The design is ecological and sustainable, inspired in the constructions of the “estancias” of the zone, somewhat inclines by the strength of nature and simulating arising from earth itself.
Energy Efficiency – Usage under 50% on fuels
The heat is maintained inside thanks to the coating of great isolating capacity in the walls and the natural isolation of a thick layer of dirt and natural grass on the roof, simulating arising from earth itself and at the same time letting great energy efficiency. The great quantity of thermal windows permit that light and warmth enter the hotel which reduces the use of electric light and heaters.
The ventilation of the building is produced in a natural way, there are air vents that take the income of the strength of the wind, permitting fresh air to enter and exit through specially designed vents for ventilation. With this we avoid utilizing mechanical systems. The use of motors and electronic artifacts has been reduced to its maximum, with designs that eliminating the use of elevators and mechanical pieces.
To decrease the volume of plastic bottles, we use stainless steel bottles that are filled and refilled with purified water. The hygienic products used in the laundry room, pool, and maintenance of the hotel are free of contaminating chemicals. Papers, cardboards, aluminum and glass are recycled and sent to the collection center. We count with a service of active mud for the treatment of waters through bacteria.
Community – Promoting the development of the zone
Our gastronomy is based on local ingredients that are bought in ports and vegetable gardens of Puerto Natales. 90% of our staff that works in Remota live in Puerto Natales, which supports local economical growth.
