2001 Caja Granada Headquarters, Granada

A large cube is built on top of a podium flanked by two courtyards.

Offices are arranged inside the cube on seven floors around the central interior courtyard. The cube was constructed on a 3 x 3 x 3m grid of reinforced concrete that in the roof serves as a light-gathering mechanism, the central theme of this building. The two facades to the south operate as a “brise-soleil”. The two facades to the north receive the homogeneous and continuous light of this orientation and are closed to the exterior. The central interior courtyard, a true “impluvium of light”, gathers the solid sunlight through the skylights
