Residence of the Swiss Ambassador

Renovation and conversion

The house is one of the most important buildings of the post-war modernism in Ecuador and was built in the year 1972 by the famous architect and artist Oswaldo Muñoz Mariño for himself and his family.
As part of the overall refurbishment, the residence has been modernized, rebuilt and earthquake-proofed.
The house consists of two parts, each of which has different room types and functions. The public part in the west is a modernistic building with a large saddle roof. In the east this includes a single-storey building with masonry domes and -vaults around an inner courtyard.
