With a “well-balanced” proposal, according to the jury, Spanish firm Rafael de La-Hoz Arquitectos has been selected to design the new corporate headquarters for Spanish soccer team Real Madrid.

Carried out in collaboration with building company Ferrovial Agromán, the winning proposal aims at “unifying all services, modernizing administrative offices and, more generally, addressing the challenges of the future,” according to the firm.

With a total area of 8,000 square meters, the building will be located in the Valdebebas sport city in Madrid. The proposal is based on “a set of two rectangular volumes which move and adapt to the ground and welcome workplaces in a fluid, transversal space, flooded with light.”

“The overall design of the building is made of a set of two parallelepiped-shaped volumes which adapt to the existing topography. The upper volume moves and looks towards the outside road while the other faces the training grounds of the sports city. All workplaces share a fluid, transversal space, flooded with light,” adds the architecture firm. 

The Santiago Bernabéu stadium will continue being the home to member services, in addition to the business and institutional buildings. 

Construction on the project is expected to take 16 months.
