TO THE RESCUE OF THE HERITAGE
The building that houses Su Merced Hotel Boutique was a particular find. The intentions of the hotel was to find a property located in the heart of Santiago, near the most attractive tourist spots, but also had a heritage value and a significant history behind. And this building fully complied with those demands.
The building has an ideal location framed in the typical Santa Lucia area, just facing the Forest Park, ensuring beautiful views towards the San Cristobal hill. It also has a second facade towards Santiago Bueras Street, which would allow us to have a more comfortable access and at the same time connect with the tourist and cultural activity that takes place in the Lastarria neighborhood.
In addition the building -which dates from the beginning of the 20th century- had gone through different uses from housing and lodging to commercial offices and restaurant.
However, the building -which is declared a historic conservation building- was not in the best structural conditions due to the passage of time, so a restoration was imminent.
The initial diagnosis showed that the original structure, predominantly in wood, was not in good condition to receive the modifications that the project demanded, among which the most important was an additional fourth floor. In this way, it was decided to build a new steel structure to maintain the original facades, while at the same time allowing the building's surface to be extended.
The design of these modifications was treated with special respect to the original design of the property and was approved by the Council of Monuments of Chile. In this way, proportions and constructive details of the facade were maintained, as well as interior spatial heights and dimensions. The result is a new building, with all the requirements that a hotel in this category requires, inserted inside a heritage building. The aforementioned steel structure has been visible in the rooms and dining room as a record of the intervention carried out.
In this way it has been possible to rescue a heritage building giving birth to this Boutique Hotel through a modern and avant-garde design that guarantees comfort and well-being by providing an exclusive and personalized service.
