TREASURY OFFICE IN VITORIA

Roberto Ercilla Arquitectura as Architects

We were asked to create an architectural configuration with an indefinite programme for general office use. Conditions of the lot for urban planning include two different heights at its ends – 5 and 8 storeys respectively – from which arises the proposal of a terraced building that naturally resolves both elevations.


The necessary use of a module to absorb different convertible elements, such as raised flooring, screens, or lattice, refers us to the bas element of 60 x 60 cm or industrial plate of raised flooring.


The lack of programmatic definition and predictable later modifications impede a hierarchy of formal and complex resolutions. The answer to this issue is produced by means of the incorporation of a façade-grate that extends like a skin that is perforated over its surface. Horizontal quartering reduces the perception of height, settling the building. Each inner space has three glass strips which provide three different visions to each workplace.
