Alta Diagonal Building

The comprehensive refurbishment of this office building designed by the architects Fargas and Tous in the 1990s aims to increase energy efficiency, reduce building maintenance, obtain LEED certification and update the public image of the offices. To do so, the project includes the substitution of the cooling/heating system and specific interventions to the building’s envelope and common spaces, especially the entrance lobby. The design strategy includes suppressing all the elements that have been added over the years, using the colour white and materials such as wood to produce a bright, open-plan, comfortable space.
