WIP offices in Barcelona
Office building on Ciudad de Granada Street 121 in the 22@ district
Thanks to the large number of innovations that are implemented in the project, the office building in Tangier 36 is the new reference for offices in 22@: a building designed to attract and retain the talent demanded by technology companies that are established in the area.
A state-of-the-art office building located on the corner of Tanger-Álava streets and also bordering the interior passage system of the Ratés passage. This project is located on a plot that is part of a plan also developed by batlleiroig in 2007.
The volume of the building is organized in an L-shape on the first 4 floors plus a technical floor on which two smaller floors are located. On the fifth floor, where the section change takes place, we find a green roof with the creation of spaces for possible events and relationships. In addition, the building is characterized by the design of a large atrium in the main access creating a climate refuge and improving the thermal and acoustic insulation of the building, incorporating shaded and well-being spaces for users.
The building, with a constructed area of 11,585 m2, is integrated into the urban context by developing a unique solution on the Tangier-Álaba corner, where a 4-storey exterior atrium is generated that frames the access to the building and generates a plaza of access to the building related to the pacified street Tangier.
The entrance hall is located at the end of the building, which we access through the large atrium that indicates the entrance. It is a private continuation of the access plaza, with which it communicates through the fully glazed façade.
Once inside, tangentially we have a large entrance of light through a skylight that communicates with the basement through a unique staircase and a large green wall.
Tanger 36 is a very optimal building with a central nucleus that is attached to one of the interior facades of the passage and allows generating very flexible office floors while ensuring that the vertical communication areas and services have natural lighting.
In addition, all the office floors have terraces at the ends, promoting the relationship of the workspaces with the outdoor spaces.
The system of visible installations allows obtaining free heights under a roof of about 3.15 meters in height. They are organized in perimeter strips that hide the most voluminous and noisy elements of the system, allowing us to leave very tidy, spacious, and bright floors: an image very adapted to the needs of technology companies that are the most common tenants of 22 @.
The building responds to the 22@ industrial past with a façade in ceramic tones, which is presented as a double skin with an exterior vertical lattice closure and an interior skin formed by a ceramic cladding in the blind spots (slabs and pillars) and large glazed openings in the rest of the spaces. The end walls are resolved with balconies two meters deep.
The double skin that forms the façade is designed according to the orientation of the building, differentiating the separation of the slats on the facades with more solar incidence from that of the facades facing north.
This lattice is made up of rhomboidal baguettes of approximately 70×50 mm and has a two-layer lacquered finish in different brown tones, which is achieved by means of a base of different intensities of gray and a similar brown finish all slats.
Like the rest of the façade components, the slat lattice has been executed by slat modules previously shaped in the workshop to facilitate its subsequent positioning and assembly on site.
The building has the highest energy rating “A” in air conditioning thanks to the centralized station in the 22@ neighborhood, which supplies the new buildings, and, on the other hand, to the passive systems of the double-skin façade and its efficiency.
In addition, it receives the LEED Gold V4 Core and Shell rating, which guarantees that the building has been built with local materials and manufactured with sustainability criteria, designed with environmental criteria to reduce water consumption and energy demand, with characteristics that they ensure the quality of the interior air of the offices and with an innovative design adapted to the characteristics of the place.
