The IMDEA Software Building is a research building where less is more. It unifies all of the Institute’s offices into a single structure of 2 floors to facilitate the interaction between the researchers.
This project was awarded to Estudio Lamela through a restricted tender. It started out from the idea of bringing together all the research offices into a single two-floor piece to encourage contact and interaction between researchers.
The research space is an elevated, light and technological structure, which dominates and characterizes the Research Institute. The whole program which serves as support for the research space is located below this one and is in contact with the land, forming a structure of stepped terraces. The roofs of these terraces are plant gardens.
