COAM Awards 2011 – Honorable Mention in Renovation category
XI BEAU 2011 – Shortlisted
The project arises from the need to respond to the flaws in use and operation of an exisiting building, as well as to the sun-exposure and lighting problems which ensue from the original façade. In the interior, our project comprises the reorganization of the programme, dividing it in three areas –operational, office and institutional. These are arranged by means of glass screens which feature various degrees of opacity, colors and drawings, creating a new artificial landscape to work at. The façade is solved with a second skin consisting of 5mm perforated alluminium sheets, varying in density according to lighting comfort standards, as well as to solar energy dissipation. The metallic nuances of the new skin react to the atmospheric changes, especially to the sunsets that occur in this vast and open area of Arganda del Rey where the headquarters are located.
