Communications company gets a futuristic makeover.

Lara Piras

Architecture firm Herreros Arquitectos has completely renovated Spanish company Hispasat’s existing headquarters by placing a perforated facade made from sheet aluminum around the building’s exterior. This facade helps to control solar radiation and rising temperatures within the office building bringing the working environment back to a bearable one as it once was. The pattern of the diamond-shaped cutouts cleverly adapts to the building’s lighting and climate control needs.

The design also gives the building, originally built in the 70s, a futuristic feel and look to reflect the current rebranding process of the company.
