This camping shelter located on a high perch in central Chile, south in the Maule region, was designed by the architect Rodrigo Caceres Cespedes as an experiment to provide a contemporary shelter to the traveling cyclists.

The shelter offers a place to rest and admire the valleys and lakes below since cycling is one of the best ways to experience the countryside of Chile. The camping shelter also ensures safe overnight resting places so that the tourists can extend the duration of their travels.

The aesthetic of the project features an angular exterior with several facets and coated in a permeable sheen that permits the light to pass inside as well as ensure natural ventilation without exposing the inhabitants to rain.

The sleeping areas have raised bed bases and the bikes can be hung on a storage system at the entrance. The shelter is public and there isn’t any need for an attendant or for a reservation.
