Text description provided by the architects. The neighbor care building in Peñalolén is part of a phased project of a civic center that brings together various services granted by the municipality. The project includes a set of functional and open buildings that respond efficiently to the variety of needs and aspirations of the community: community meeting, human development and social participation.
