The existing building that is the object of this project was constructed at the end of the 19th century. In recent it has been subject to numerous interventions, not all of them structural, including the enlargement of its volume and some relating to aesthetic issues, such as the modification of the main façade.
The result is a building with scarce natural light and a generally low quality spatial qualification.
The building, located in the heart of Madrid, is currently being adapted to its new needs as the corporate headquarters of the leading insurance company Seguros Catalana de Occidente.
The office building has six floors and a basement located between party walls, with the project proposing to modify the interior alone to achieve a far more rational functionality, while respecting the degrees of protection the building enjoys.
