Luxury interior design at ÁBATON headquarters, Madrid

Madrid-based architectural practice ÁBATON have completed the design of their office. The contemporary office space can be found in the outskirts of Madrid, Spain.

According to the architects: “Located in a housing estate in the outskirts of Madrid with some outstanding oak trees and next to some well established buildings. The main objective was that the building itself be a landmark within the estate and to show ÁBATON’s work in a neat and symbolic manner. It is a multipurpose area that has a showroom, offices and the construction company’s warehouse. The concrete façade was set back and a tree-lined area was given over to a public path suggesting a friendly environment.

“The storeroom of construction materials is set in a space which is 9 metres deep providing cool air to the working areas during the summer months by way of currents of air. The under floor heating system with condensing boilers, has an absorption machine incorporated to produce cool air in the summer run on solar panels and vacuum capacitors set on the roof top.

The large swimming pool helps to clear the heat coming from the absorption machine. The concrete walls in the basement were covered with shelves and cupboards increasing thermal insulation. A cube was embedded in the centre of the building and floating above the basement, serves as the heart of the property being the place which leads to the upper areas by way of an interior excavation.”
