Designed in 1990 by the architects Enrique Browne and Borja Huidobro, the Consorcio Office Building is, since its completion in 1993, a true landmark in the metropolitan area of Santiago De Chile, as well as a world-renowned example of architectural biodiversity.
Standing out for its unique architecture and sustainable urbanism, this 17-storey building features a jaw-dropping vertical garden of about 3,000 sqm. Its sun-exposed side is entirely covered by deciduous vegetation gorgeously flourishing in summer and taking on a beautiful red tone in autumn. Owing to a climbing vine supported by a lattice structure, this wall has the incredible ability to absorb 48% less heat in hot seasons, resulting in energy savings for office air conditioning. With the arrival of the winter, the vine leaves fall letting the sun's rays free to enter through the large windows, naturally warming up and enlightening the indoor office spaces.
