Casa Taller Luciano Kulczewski


Address

Estados Unidos 210

This building was designed and inhabited by the leading Chilean architect, Luciano Kulzcewski, who left his imprint on several buildings in the Lastarria Quarter.

His House-Workshop, also known as the House of the Towers, is a small castle where he used to live with his family. Erected on a triangular-shaped piece of land, this property stands out for its stone façade and a tower which, as a whole, include Gothic, Art Nouveau and Art Deco elements. Inside spaces were defined on the second and third level.

In Kulczewski’s work, five architectural styles can be noted: Art Deco, Gothic, Tudor, Neo-classical and Art Nouveau. His special fondness for Art Nouveau was due to the fact that it allowed him to give a unique hallmark to his creations.

Among his most outstanding works are the access to the Funicular railway on Cerro San Cristóbal Metropolitan Park, the headquarters of the Association of Architects, and the Keller housing complex, located in the Providencia commune.
