From the architect. These building are laid out according to a strip arrangement, creating an ordered and functional design which sets out clear entrances and highly versatile, multi-purpose spaces.

There is a main communications strip, which is the backbone of the design, created as a glazed area with climbing vegetation and scattered courtyards that provide interesting sequences for the visitor/user.

This linear corridor runs along the top of the roof and has the appearance of a lantern, drawing you in from the outside. From the inside the views are accentuated with volumes that curt across the building.

Each floor contains a meeting room that protrudes out over the landscape, offering views of the bay and the Gata Cape Natural Park.
