The adaptability of simple mining structures, in terms of both their use and their response to climate, was the key to this project, a rehabilitation of a 1,200-acre disused tin mine to provide resort accommodation. The construction is low-tech. The reception building consists of minimal and expressed steel structures, with a metal roof and acrylic skins. The chalets are made of metal roofing sheets, brick and plaster, and sustainable local hardwoods. They incorporate generous apertures at either end, to 'invite in natural breezes and filtered light'. Timber screens and planting stop the rain from thunderstorms being blown in too.
