The canvas domes at Elqui Domos Hotel in Chile bring the beauty of the outdoors in for its visitors. Designed for the astronomy-obsessed guest with a love of stargazing, these stretched canvas tents allow one to camp in style without having to spend the night outdoors.

The design firm RDM Architects have been called to create the commissioned canvas domes at Elqui Domos Hotel that are located in the heart of the gorgeous Andes Mountains. These chic canvas tents feature a ceiling cutout feature that acts as a skylight to inhabitants whose beds are situated right underneath its opening. While laying in bed, room inhabitants can fall asleep to breathtaking night sky views of stars and the hotel’s surrounding mountainous landscape.
