Recabarren Business-Center & Hotel

The task was to place another urban and architectural accent in the urban centre of the hyper-modern city of Santiago with its stunning development.

The central building of Empresas Transoceanica was realized at a centrally located "plaza" with the infrastructure of everyday use and an international culinary landscape.

The energy concept represents the current state of the art in terms of quality and energy use.

The building is intended to set a precedent for architecture and building energy technology in South America and shows that the integration of architecture and technology – adapted to the local climate – generates minimum energy requirements and a high degree of comfort for the users.
