The Errazuriz Palace has been transformed several times along its almost 150 years.
The project aims to recover its importance in Santiago city as well as meeting all the needs of a modern diplomatic residence.

The working methodology for the main floor has been to recover and highlight its marbles and majestic woods to provide a magnificent frame to its public usage.

The second floor, which is mainly private, has been completely remodeled to create a spacious and modern residence, always with absolute respect to the building, its history and key features.
