Abril, La Moraleja Business Park, Madrid

RAFAEL DE LA-HOZ completes one of its most sustainable buildings to date.

The project, named Abril, is part of La Moraleja Business Park located in one of the most prestigious areas in the north of Madrid and has been promoted by the financial firm Arcano Partners, through its first real estate fund, ASOREF. Fully capable of combining flexible and contemporary workspace with spacious social areas, the building delves into capital costs and challenging construction strategies to enhance #sustainability, making a unique, commercial building that considers the #health of its users and promotes #wellbeing.

The result is a holistic approach to explore how #scope, #time, #quality and #budget can combine to meet the best design performance and increase commercial returns.

Influenced by the existing landscape, the site perimeter and the structural grid, it stands out from its neighbouring buildings, overlooking the city skyline and cityscape.

The existence of an important copse of Mediterranean pine trees reminiscent of the mountains of central Spain gave rise to the design of an interesting mixed wood of evergreen and deciduous species that will enrich the landscape of the plot throughout the year.

The building, which obtained LEED Gold and WELL Certificates, focuses on occupant comfort and indoor environmental quality, inquiring into how the architectural mass and skin creates shadow and light, and how those elements affect and engage with the building’s users. The focus is aligned with the strategy of Arcano Partners, which offers added value to investors. This commitment has turned Arcano Partners into one of the leading real estate investment managers in Spain, with close to 350 million euros in its management portfolio.

Rafael de La-Hoz explains, “”Due to its unique location, Abril blends into the landscape, and the glass skin blurs the boundary between indoors and outdoors. Depending on the light, the glass can be transparent, showing the interior life, or opaque, sensitive to colour changes in the surrounding area, creating a new landscape.”
