AXIS BUILDING: LAST PROYECT OF FOSTER + PARTNERS IN MADRID
Foster + Partners presented recently the last project of the firm in Madrid. It includes the refurbishment of the building located at Colon Square 1, in the city center, and property of the American fund CBRE Global Investors since last year.
Located at the junction of Paseo de la Castellana (North-South) and Génova Street (East-West), where the limits of Salamanca, Chamberí and Centro neighbourhoods meet, this AXIS Building arises as a new reference in Madrid’s architecture.
FHECOR participates directly in this interesting project, carrying out an assessment and refurbishment of the existing structure to update it to the new requirements, and working at the new and distinctive diagrid of the façade as well as at one structure of catenaries that will allow creating a garden at the roof with a view of Colón Square.
