Text description provided by the architects. The building is located in an industrial area of Madrid which has been under a process of transformation over the past few years in which the old industrial premises are being replaced by new buildings of mixed use, housing new activities like small firms of software development, design or film production.

This industrial environment is reflected in the materials used on this project: glass and perforated steel plate.

The building assumes a relatively compact shape that stretches out and occupies the depth of the plot.

To provide natural light to all the working spaces, a courtyard was created which, with its irregular shape, multiplies the reflexions and the perception of the space, in a joyful contrast with the austere exterior. The courtyard acts as a big lobby, with glazed elevators, giving access to each floor through an open loggia.

Each floor is organized as an open working space whose shape, dimension and proximity to the façade allows different layouts. All the service spaces are lined along the North wall, facing the adjacent building.

The exterior façades provide, with their perforated steel plate skin, good natural lighting and at the same time, good solar protection and a sense of enclosure. At night, the apparently windowless building reveals its glowing interior.
