A scheme drawn up by Cruz y Ortiz Arquitectos in collaboration with Ulargui Arquitectos has won the competition organized by Spain’s Finance Ministry to raise a new institutional building at Padre Damián 52, in Madrid.
With a rectangular courtyard inside, the elliptical composition formed by four blocks rises on a triangular plot bordered by vegetation. The ensemble of four volumes reaches a maximum height of 30 meters, and this diminishes to adapt to an urban transition of large-scale to small-scale. The outline of the ellipse turns slightly to align with the street General López Pozas, where one gets what constitutes the main view of the building.
