Working on Origins Lodge project was an opportunity to create
a global concept from scratch, down to its ultimate detail.
Together with Hugues Blanchere and with the support of Origins’ owner we modernized the honored pre-Colombian philosophies and natural building techniques to create a place shaped by nature and tamed by low-impact luxury.
