Description Original Language (Spanish)
The City of Innovation is located in a peri-urban micro-landscape converted into a business park. This technological park is characterized by seeking to implant the buildings in an isolated manner, within a green environment, seeking an internal landscape that is closely related to the surrounding one.
Surrounded by road connections, the project responds to this situation as a great infrastructural milestone, like a large transparent reservoir. A large cylinder of glass is formed, almost 50m in diameter with a hard, emphatic and clear geometry. An autonomous geometry that floats on a green hillside.
MINIMIZE ENERGY CONSUMPTION. MINIMUM ENVELOPE, MAXIMUM EFFICIENCY
A project is proposed that associates in its design genesis the reduction of the energy consumption of the building and the typology of the office. The circular shape of the plan, apart from the internal functional advantages, helps to optimize the form factor of the building.
This cylindrical geometry reduces the façade area by 35% compared to a rectangular office building with similar functional characteristics.
- Reduction of construction energy costs
- All orientations
- Optimum interior lighting, reduced cost of artificial lighting
- Reduction of energy consumption for heating and air conditioning
- Minimum resistance to wind and reduction of load losses
