Eso Hotel is located in the Chilean Atacama desert, where the European Southern Observatory (ESO) operates the Very Large Telescope, one of the largest telescopes on earth. Scientists, working under the extreme climatic conditions need lodging facilities that allow one to rejuvenate between the working shifts, and much like an ‘oasis’ the facilities must offer the necessary amenities for a prolonged stay in an otherwise uninhabatable environment. Eso Hotel includes interior courtyards with generous vegetation, a canteen, a fitness room and a swimming pool in addition to the sleeping quarters and working spaces.
