REFURBISHMENT OF OFFICES
IN AMADOR DE LOS RÍOS (MADRID)
It is a performance on a building that already exists. A partial restructuring of the ground, basement and fourth floors is proposed. The facade is replaced, but the change is respectful of the surrounding buildings, cadence and typology in general.
The building of Amador de los Ríos 5 in Madrid already has a license for its transformation. It is an action on an existing building and consists of the partial restructuring of the ground, basement and fourth floors, with the replacement of facades and general conditioning of the spaces for office use.
The proposed interventions are aimed at updating the facilities, energy improvement, structural reinforcement, compliance with universal accessibility standards, and general updating of the aesthetics and functionality of the building.
These actions have been carried out based on an exhaustive study of the current building, its physical and urban context, its constructive and structural condition, as well as the historical background of the building and its architecture.
The composition of the new exterior facade is respectful of the surrounding constructions, adapting to their rhythm, cadence and general typology. It introduces traditional solutions such as double facade, pergola, and colonnade. The level of articulation and detail of the facade responds in a contemporary way to the level and quality of the characteristic details in the surrounding facades.
