After selling the previous Repsol tower, designed by Norman Foster to Caja , Spanish architect, Rafael de la Hoz was commissioned to design the company’s new headquarters. In an extensive area in southern Madrid, he designed a set of four buildings, which are intended to reflect the image of a campus.

The building is characterized by the rate of frames that hug each building, generating an image of great power. The center will have a large common garden area.
