It was decided to build a Mining Centre in the Engineering department of the Catholic University of Chile, in the San Joaquin Campus. The site faces the wide Vicuña Mackenna Avenue where the elevated metro systems runs through. The initial assignment considered a volume of 6 floors with classrooms, professor rooms, auditorium and a small mining museum. We designed a type of constructed “rock” (option 1).

Located on the outskirts of the city of Santiago de Chile, in the Valley of Chicureo, “Los Bosques house” belongs to a young family who previously lived in an apartment in a high density area of the district of Las Condes, Downtown Santiago.
For them the expression of contemporary house played a key role in the project. Simple lines, flexible spaces, outside-inside connection and a central courtyard were part of their duties.

Fray León building is a small set of 9 apartments located in the area of San Damián, in the commune of Las Condes, in Santiago de Chile. The architectural proposal consists of breaking a body into small fragments that generate unique and identifiable volumes, without repetition and almost without modulation. We work in a way to generate identity and a sense belonging. Each apartment has its own particularity and characteristics.

The point of departure that moulds the original project concept is the building’s name: “Territoria” territory, which indicates that the architecture appropriates the geography of Chile. The territory of Chile with its contrasts and frictions is the horizontal between the physical and the metaphysical, where the impact of the action of the elements causes friction a territory that defines the limit between the physical and metaphysical.
