The project is defined by an ensemble of buildings connected by an internal covered street, designed in a similar way to some streets in central Seville. Internal paths and pedestrian areas with gardens will go across the building, so work and exterior spaces will interweave when the whole block will be finished.
Two parallel building wings, with an internal corridor and office modules on both sides draw up a wide lobby crossed by bridges in different locations an heights. This contributes to the creation of different spaces along the way. These bridges are occupied by multipurpose rooms that serve either wings of the building.
The visitor has a clear orientation, with an easy access to circulation cores and services as shops, cafeteria, reception, training rooms and the auditorium, areas which promote socialising.
As a kind of curtain, a set of vertical concave-convex blinds protects the main facades (facing to east and west) against direct sunlight. The building offers an image of austerity while its singularity is developed inside. A contemporary building related to the architecture of Seville, an architecture characterized by the control of light and the creation of pleasant spaces connected to water or greenery. The reproduction of the classical sequence plaza-street-house defined by archs (the porch and bridges) and hallways (circulation cores) is accompanied by changes in scale and crossed views.
