From the architect. The new headquarters of Bilbao City Hall in San Agustín, is situated in front of the back façade of the Neobaroque Palace that holds the present Town Hall, built in 1892 by Joaquin Rucoba Architect. The recent building contains the technical offices of the Town Hall. The historic building will keep the representative image of the city corporation and the headquarters of the Mayor.

The treatment applied to the residual public spaces has the objective to fluff the urban fabric and increase the available area to generate a little plaza becoming an urban antechamber or lobby to access the Town Hall Headquarters. The fragmentation of the whole in two volumes has the will to integrate the building into the city plot, adapt the scale and the heights to the place and enhance the traditional pedestrian way across the parcel.

Inside the building the aim has been to create flexible terms of use in the different floors, which are able to generate different types of offices, from the closed one to open work areas or common elements to relax. From the point of view of the Environmental improvement it has been adopted different strategies and actions to increase the quality of the work area and minimize energy consumptions and CO2 emissions.

The façade surround offers an intelligent answer to the insolation requests. The skin facing south materialized in a double façade, with maintenance and ventilation camera inside with domotic adjustable slat blinds that regulate the impact of the direct sun light on the workstations and the uptake of heat. The artificial lighting systems regulate discriminating areas the luminance above the worktop, depending the received natural light. The facilities has been designed with maximum efficiency standards and has been incorporate water consumption savings and greywater recovery.
