ABOUT SKY HACIENDA
June Donaldson and Edward Garry live at an altitude of 2,600 metres in Mosoj Llajta, Yotala, 20 minutes from the colonial city of Sucre in Bolivia, South America. Using earth and stones from the land, we have sculpted beautiful buildings which compliment the high desert landscape and incorporate creative and innovative elements of design.
We have designed a high quality hotel in Sucre for guests who want to get off the treadmill of travelling from city to city in South America. At Sky Hacienda you can dictate your own timing and choose how to enjoy your stay, whether it is doing very little or exploring the best that the Andes in Bolivia has to offer.

We decided to choose metal frames for our windows, to provide a contrast with the fluid adobe walls of the building.
We found an artisan builder in Sucre whose work reflected the quality we were seeking.
The thick adobe walls gave us the flexibility to install the flat window frames.
Once glazed the windows looked better than we had envisaged.
We particularly liked the way the view from one side of the main bedroom to the other and beyond was framed.
