The Mestizo restaurant is located at the northeast end of the Teodoro Fernández''s park and takes a corner opposite between a lookout hill and the pavement skirting the Bicentenario Avenue. In the last 2005, the restaurant project won a public competition convoked by the Municipality of Vitacura in Santiago.
The first scheme for the competition consisted of constructing a built artifact with bits of imagery taken literally from other places. Hence, in the trial model there appeared a kid’s rubber ring, which would be the ceiling, made of an inflated PVC-lined polyester membrane, of the salon, along with lattices of the kind used for industrial watering as a perimetral support for said ceiling and a number of big lumps of granite transported from the quarry to the site.
One was thus trying to generate an atmosphere with regard to an interpretation of the particular physical weight and density of each element. The aim was to create a strange sort of pavilion, a folly like those seemingly improvised ones in old parks: the Chinese pavilion, or the Japanese or the Greek, the birdhouse, and so on.
Descending from the beams are supports that in strategic places fit with the lumps of granite of various sizes, heights and weights. The new model is much obligated to the early pavilions of SverreFehn and I would venture to say that it envolves the same design system as the one JosepQetglas detects in Berthold Lubetkin''s Highpoint II housing in London.
