From the architect. Telefonica, as the larger Spanish company, creates the strategic challenge of regroup its fourteen thousand employees in one and unique headquarters in Madrid.

A campus-headquarters vision, is designed after a long process of studding the liabilities, necessities and objectives definitions. This makes its conceptual flexibility and its homogeneous architecture a high financial value; nevertheless, with a strong architectural definition.

Four identical phases with three concentrated buildings are placed in the corners of the site creating watchtowers defining the campus perimeter.

Inside the site, the administration, restaurants, clinic or gymnasiums are equally placed at all phases of the perimeter.

With a unique special glass system-created only for this project- and a extensive protective and sun accumulator overhang top, prevents a scattered perception of the complex. In this way congress as a unique building and a unique company.
