Germán del Sol (born Germán del Sol Guzmán) first made his name with a series of hotels that took design-minded architecture to some of Chile's most remote terrain. Founded under his tourism-centric company, Explora, these include Patagonia’s Hotel Salto Chico and Hotel de Larache.

Other major works include Termas Geométricas, a hot spring complex in Villarrica National Park, the 72-room hotel Remota, set in bucolic Patagonian surroundings and featuring a striking blackened wood-and-felt exterior and the headquarters of the Viña Seña vineyard, in the Aconcagua Valley, for which he famously moulded the building to it's surroundings to create a previously-impossible view.

In 2006 del Sol was awarded Chile’s highest accolade for an architect, the Colegio de Arquitectos de Chile’s National Architecture Prize.
