The Residencia was conceived as a comfortable retreat for professionals and technicians working under extreme dryness and isolation, far from their families, for long periods of time. It boasts 108 bedrooms over 4 levels and 10 000 square metres, as well as facilities such as a restaurant, music room, library, swimming-pool and sauna.
