Iván Fuenzalida, architect.
Santa María 599, Recoleta.
This building houses two independent unities, as twins facing a mirror, one for each of the two firemen companies. It occupies a privileged site facing the wide space of the river, the Mercado central, the former Mapocho rail station (now an active cultural center) and the Forestal Park. In spite of its reduced scale, the building stands as a relevant element in the neighborhood, showing its sober architectural details, opposing the pressure of the real estate agents, as can be seen in the background.
