Project Name: Zamora Offices.
Location: Zamora, Spain.
Architects: Alberto Campo Baeza. In collaboration with Pablo Fernández Lorenzo & Pablo Redondo Díez from Arquitectos, Alfonso González Gaisán and Francisco Blanco Velasco.

“Facing the cathedral and following the outline of the former convent’s kitchen garden, we erect a strong stone wall box open to the sky. Its walls and floors entirely made of stone. The very same stone as the Cathedral. Within the stone box, a glass box, only glass. Like a greenhouse. With a double facade similar to a Trombe wall. The external skin of the facade is made of glass, each single sheet measuring 600x300x1,2 and all joined together simply with structural silicone and hardly anything else. As if entirely made of air.

The trihedral upper angles of the box are made completely with glass, thus even further accentuating the effect of transparency. Precisely what Mies was looking for in his Friedrichstrasse tower. The trihedron built with air, a true Glass Corner.” - Alberto Campo Baeza
