Text description provided by the architects. The building is connected to a racetrack located in Barcelona, and is actively used as a training site for professional motor racing. Several companies involved in the industry have set up permanent offices in this building.

A flexible design was needed for the building so that it could accommodate several companies of varying sizes.  For this reason, the building is divided between several 35 square meter subdivisions or sectors.

Each is independent from the other, and all mechanical, electrical and plumbing (MEP) utilities were installed below each sector, allowing for an unobstructed view, optimal energy efficiency, and minimized energy consumption.

Plan 2

The building had to be completed in only 6 months, and therefore we chose to employ already built concrete frameswhile the concrete was being moulded in a factory we begin to lay the foundations of the building and transform the plot of land.

Special care was taken when selecting the glass panes. To prevents overheating, minimizes greenhouse effects and eliminates the possibility of an irritating glare appearing on, for example, their computer monitors.


We sought to prevent any potential issues related to oxidation, or rusting of any metallic components. We therefore only employed aluminium, galvanized and or stainless steel, and obviously abstained from using any painted iron.

The interior had to be crafted with the most durable of materials; cement plates were thus chosen as they are more resistant to shock and moisture exposure and damage than dry wall and sheetrock.  A porcelain floor helped us to create a solid, durable, and shock resistant surface

The interior finish was coloured white to complement and enhance the building’s light output. The air conditioning is powered by geothermal energy which is quite low maintenance, is more economical, and as a system it greatly reduces CO2 emissions.


The lighting system includes an automatic adjustment feature that maximizes natural light.
