Building designed to house the Spanish headquarters of a car rental company. It is located at the front of an 18.703 sq. meter plot, the rest of which is devoted to parking for the rental cars.
Rectangular, free-standing, flexible and modular, its orientation is north-south to maximize exposure to sunlight for the interior. Its double-height spaces and its larger first floor give the impression that it its four facades fly, like a crystal box supported by a smaller body. A perforated aluminum skin protects the glass facade from direct sunlight.
In addition, the entrance of natural light has been favored by the creation of two green inner courts around which the different areas are built.
