ANGAMOS 285 is an office and commerce building located in Chacarilla. The plot is located in one of the busiest corners within the district, with a shorter from towards Angamos Oeste avenue and a longer one towards Velasco Astete avenue.
The fie-story building takes advantage of the existing limits by creating activity on the sidewalks and commercially active facades. The façades facing both streets require a flexible and corporate character, in order to provide user mobility without them being associated to a specific company.
The vertical bars serve mainly to prevent the afternoon sunlight heating and disturbing the offices facing Velasco Astete. An interior patio is created towards the center of the plot. A cafe serving visitors and employees alike is created, activating this patio. The building hosts 602 m2 of commercial space, 7,000 of office space and 12,000m2 of parking spaces (270 vehicles).
