San Isidro Labrador Church, Santiago, Chile

The temple of San Isidro is the result of different building phases, the last under the guidance of architect Ignacio Cremonesi in 1896. It was declared a National Monument in 1977. Throughout its history, the simple masonry building with a predominantly neoclassical style, suffered numerous structural damages; but it is the damage resulting of the 2010 earthquake, that led to the current restoration work. The work includes the structural stabilization and enhancement of the temple during the first phase. To do so, structural bracings with reinforced concrete and steel elements, have been added at the top of the masonry walls of the temple and in the lightened roof slab; facade cracks have been repaired, and the roof and framing structure have been comprehensively recovered. As part of the property’s improvement, a lighting design has been completed, that covers its main facade and main nave. The restoration work enables the temple’s reopening, which has been closed since 2010.
