This revamp project recovered a 2,368 sq. ft. (220 sq. m) flat in the Caja Nacional de Periodistas y Empleados building in Santiago de Chile. The apartment is on the top floor of the four-story building, which made it possible to improve the natural lighting conditions via different skylights.
The room distribution respected most of the original 1934 configuration and the work focused on recovering the flooring throughout the apartment, except in the bathrooms. The original ironwork was also restored and the outside windows replaced with thermo-panels.
The general aim was to spark a dialogue between the original and the contemporary, boosting the heritage value of one of the first modern buildings in Chile.
