The project consists in the creation of spaces for meetings and activities for corporations, foundations, organizations and independent groups, in which the goal is to encourage and facilitate, from architectural gestures, personal and interpersonal meetings; and small group or communities.

Convention Center House, San Francisco de la Paz seek to build the act of the meeting, which will be reflected in spaces related to nature, where instances generate a variety of relationships and encounters promoting internal/external, personal/group, being the landscape, topography and vernacular nature, the spaces that provide the context for the gestation of these various types of encounters. Is located in a rural area in the district of Casablanca, Province of Valparaíso, V Region, Chile. This landscape is characterized by its connectivity and proximity to Santiago, Viña del Mar and Valparaíso, but at the same time, by its isolation and disconnection of the urban and all that goes with the frantic pace of the city. This area is one of the few that have not yet been tapped, keeping intact its exuberant natural beauty and preserving the land from contamination.

The morphological conceptualization is the outcome of the existing topography and local qualities, where they developed organic architecture “tectonic”, inhabited since the landscape, the interior space to the outside and encouraging the transition between both.
