“We look for the synthesis between the architectural quality, the environmental efficiency and the social responsibility” J. Sabaté

INNOVATION AGENCY OF ANDALUSIA

Corporate Center of the Innovation Agency of Andalusia / Sevilla
2006 /10.131.000 €  / 10.463 m²
The building is organized around a central courtyard, which acts as a covered garden and at the same time as a public space of the centre. . This central courtyard is covered by a big shade-structure with openings facing the north and solar collectors to the south. Inside this courtyard a microclimate of temperature and silence is generated by the shade, the water and vegetation.
The exterior facades have an effect of protection against heat, too. They are composed by a double skin; the exterior one is made of two big slabs of white concrete that provide an elevated thermalmass. It also protects against the sun and diffuses the direct sunlight. The composition of those slabs varies depending on the facade’s orientation: openwork to the south, more closed to the east and west, and almost open to the north. This first skin made of slabs conforms the abstract image of the building and avoids the direct solar radiation to the second skin.
To analyse the environmental impact produced by the construction and the use of the building, the LEED methodology has been used, developed by the Green Building Council. This method is based on the evaluation of principal sections: site, water, energy, material and resources, quality of internal environment and innovation
