Tierra Restaurant in Melipilla, Chile by Cavagnaorojo arquitectos

Our task consisted in remodeling a house located in downtown Melipilla and converting it into a restaurant and coffee house. The original building presented a rather closed-in and inflexible design plus several additions of very low quality in the back side of the property.

  • Architect: Cavagnaorojo arquitectos – Carlos Cavagnaro and Daniel Rojo
  • Name of Project: Tierra Restaurant
  • Location: Melipilla, Chile
  • Client: Walter Kahler.
  • Structural Engineering: José Manuel Jelmi
  • Project area: 224m²
  • Project year: 2010
  • Construction year: 2010 – 2011
  • Builder: Cavagnarorojo

The project required a transformation of the domestic and residential image of the original structure into an open, accessible and attractive space for a whole range of consumers that included those of an executive dining room, a family restaurant, and a cafeteria. We proposed a solution that presented both a sober and elegant image yet also a more informal and fun space so we could meet the requirements of our client and the needs of the project.

In order to optimize the resources we decided to save the existing structure and concentrate our efforts in building new spaces in the front and back of the property. Our proposal offered four main areas: a front terrace open to the street for direct interaction with pedestrians and a transition space between the street and the building; the dining rooms located in the original house with an extension that allowed us to increase the seating capacity; the bar in the middle serving as a center of activity; and finally the kitchen situated in an addition in the back of the property.
