From the architect. In the Providencia neighbourhood, right on Andres Bello Avenue, between Andres de Fuenzalida and Las Urbinas streets, the building faces north, delivering wide views over the Mapocho river, the park that runs along it, and the San Cristobal hill.

The building was designed to be used as an office space, and it comprises a vanguard expression, with an attractive play of volumes which comes as a result of an accurate study of the regulations regarding the site.

The tectonic expression seeks to create a contrast between the noble expression of the concrete and the technological look of the black aluminium ventilated façade. The north and east facades are conformed by a series of screen printed glass sunshades, which are placed transversally to the curtain wall, as a way of reducing the effects of the sun.

On the other side, the south façade is regularly perforated, and the west side of the building is completely closed, to avoid the high temperatures of this orientation. Comprising 10 stories and 5 underground parking floors, the building offers space for three offices per floor, between 90 and 130 square meters. Its name (Ombú) comes from the type of tree that grows right in front of the site, by the riverside.
