The field of the order is presented as a cloth facing inclined Santiago, which lowers a ravine.
Morphologically, it seeks to create a horizontal slope, which is accomplished with a volume container retaining wall at the bottom of the land on which rests the second volume, perpendicular to the slope, parallel to the ravine and balconies on the south;
thereby freeing more flat and creating the garden.
Programmatically accessed suspended parallel to the volume, which pierces the entry occurring in the junction of the volumes.
The public areas overlooking the garden with a panoramic view of Santiago and the Cordillera on the rooms, which are concentrated in the second volume.
