Inspired by Santiago’s Master Architect

Claude François Brunet-Debaines (1799-1855, Santiago de Chile) was the first son of a dynasty of French architects and artists from Vannes in Brittany.

Brunet-Debaines built various hôtels in Paris in collaboration with his brother Charles Fortuné-Louis. He studied at the École des Beaux-Arts and was attached to the famous Manufacture de Sèvres.

In 1848 President Manuel Bulnes appointed him architect to the government of Chile.

He arrived in Chile at a moment of particular cultural flourishing and his responsibilities included the design of institutional buildings commissioned by the government, as well as the education of a new generation of Chilean architects.

The very first professional architectural course was therefore established and briefly directed by himself, educating great architects like Aldunate and Vivaceta in the new Faculty of Architecture and Urbanism.

The Legacy

Revered as Claudio Francisco Brunet de Baines, he brought to Chile the Beaux Arts architectural language.

The results of this early French connection can be easily recognized in buildings that define the classic Santiago of today – such as the Teatro Municipal, the Congreso Nacional, the former parliament building, the Archbishop’s Palace on Plaza de Armas, and the front of the University of Chile, all of which were constructed in the second half of the nineteenth century and finished under the supervision of Lucien Henault, his colleague and successor.

Private buildings and residences, together with the first designs for the present-day Galería Matte shopping gallery, as well as one of the most popular wedding chapels, the Iglesia de la Vera Cruz on Avenida Lastarria, comprise the legacy of this great architect.

21st Century

The hotel’s architect Juan Sabbagh Pisano, winner of the National Architecture Prize, and the Design Studio Paula Gutierrez Erlandsen took the classical inspirations of Santiago’s master architect with the ambition of creating a contemporary interpretation, incorporating it into the historic ensemble marked by Brunet-Debaines’ famous Teatro Municipal.


The future Debaines Hotel Santiago strives to honor the memorable contribution Claude François Brunet-Debaines bestowed on the country and capital of Chile.
