Extention Of The Bilbao School Of Industrial And Telecommunication Engineering

Linazasoro and Sánchez Arquitectura as Architects

This urban building is located on one of the ends of the Bilbao 19th century extension, near the city bus station.


Its urban surroundings, although contradicting its convenient branched plan arrangement, demanded implementing a continuous façade as part of the building exterior urban image. In order to create this façade, an overlapping grid supporting awning-like ‘tramex’ shadings was designed. The South-facing complex, is so given an interesting shaded composition, which is enriched by the use of galvanized metal on the façade surface. This material, along with the usual grayish skies of the city, provides a fading effect to the building height. At the same time, the diagonal layout of the patios in relation to the south façade creates varied visions of the building when observed from different points of view. The industrial-looking interior is mostly dominated by raw concrete surfaces and an austere finish.
