The competition for Lérida 32 in Madrid has two main
objectives: to meet the established costs and to achieve
the most sustainable building possible.
In order to achieve this objective, strategies have been
established to have a technical/economic balance, but
at the same time make the building attractive to users
and guarantee the maximum comfort.
The refurbishment focuses on four aspects:
• Landscape and common areas
The facade interventionis focused on the design of a
bioclimatic façade whose lamelles and perforations are
adapted to each orientation and solar exposure.
The entrances to the building are simplified to a single
level. This way, the courtyard becomes the heart of the
building, giving access to the different entrances.
In addition, the proposal includes an incredible rooftop.
All the common spaces are revitalized with a careful,
low-maintenance, native landscaping selection
turning these spaces into new areas of recreation and
interaction for their users.
