Consolacion, Matarrana, Spain
Consolacion is a baroque stone building surrounded by ten wooden cabins built into the landscape. Each is 100m from the main building, in the middle of fragrant herb gardens. It is located close to the Consolacion Hermitage, in the relatively undiscovered Matarraña region of Spain.
Designed by Camprubi i Santacana Arquitectes, the hotel makes great use of natural materials like wood and stone, as well as sheet metal. The kubes are 36 sqm of minimalist architecture – black slate floors, with bathtubs emerging from them, and suspended chimneys.
The main building holds a kitchen which serves as a constant meeting place, and another outhouse serves breakfast, lunch and dinner.
