4 Población Huemul II

1943

Julio Cordero, architect.

Franklin 1330, Santiago.

Built by the Caja de la Habitación Popular (a savings fund for public employees) between 1940 and 1943, the Huemul II complex was a model of public housing, with duplex apartments to reduce the surface of corridors. Following the ideals of hygienism, the long buildings are oriented towards de sun, regardless of their relation to the street, and configure an interior area with shared amenities like a swimming pool and a commercial wing towards the facing street.
