Rehabilitation of a Historicist Building for Corporate Headquarters

Project | 2009 | Bilbao | offices, Restoration | The purpose was to restore an old historicist construction built in the 40s in a corner of the Ensanche in Bilbao and the installation of a corporate headquarters in it. The site is very close to the place where COLL-BARREU ARQUITECTOS built the Health Department Headquarters.
The building had been modified internally at different times with a very low quality, which had ruined nearly all of the property. The project proposes to consolidate constructively and structurally the façades and to empty the whole inner volume, so as to generate a single room of all building height, open to the two streets through the existing classical windows.
Inside the new great room, a group of boxes crosses the air, containing working areas both inside them and also in their roofs. The workplaces acquire urban and corporate scale and, at the same time, a great privacy and singularity.
In the basement, an auditorium is directly accessible from the great room. In addition, some open spaces are usable on the rooftop.
A services spine, visually related to floating boxes, solves the vertical communications of people, facilities, supplies and vehicles.
