Acciona Ombú is an office building for a Spanish sustainable infrastructure and energy company located within a historic industrial building built in 1905 by Luis de Landecho. The project creates a sustainable exemplar for building reuse and breathes new life into the surrounding area. With over 10,000 square-metres of new office space, the project will unify a unique mix of private and public land with green landscaping that extends to the adjoining Mendez Alvaro station.
The introduction of a series of stepped floors in timber creates a series of terraces sheltered by a single and historic roof. The structure allows for spatial flexibility, while also integrating lighting, ventilation and other services within itself.
Taking advantage of Madrid’s temperate climate, where people can comfortably be outdoors for nine months of the year, the project includes a new courtyard to a new ground floor space and a large park with 300 trees with outdoor working spaces and areas for informal meetings sheltered by a green canopy of trees.
