After selling the previous Repsol tower, designed by Norman Foster to Caja Madrid, 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.

The area of Méndez Álvaro in Madrid, where this project is being built, is transforming rapidly with many new residential buildings where once only factories and warehouses gathered.
