Substitutionproject for an old building inside a block patio in Madrid.
Small officebuilding with open plan and a single facade north oriented, surrounded by tallbuildings and with a single access through a passage. A clear intention ofcaching light with an abstract, decontextualized and minimalist language. Flowingspace trough a glass stair, where light linking the different floors. Buildingas an object, where structure is understood as an inherent part; expressed aspart of the facade.
Glass facade understood as a Vierendel beam four floorsheight supported by the two retaining concrete walls. Work space suspended inthe void. White and transparent architecture, where materials are protagonistand details look for maximum simplicity and express their function. Glass,wood, concrete and steel try to meet naturally.
