The new headquarters of the energy consultancy firm Ibernegi is located in the industrial area of Santa María de Benquerencia, in the province of Toledo. The Madrid studio Taller Abierto – Nacho Román Santiago, Julio Rodríguez Pareja, and Daniel Martínez Díaz – has designed a building that will change over the years, bringing the surrounding vegetation into its spaces and external image. The program is fitted into two different volumes: one for offices, the other for logistical storage. Both present grooved enclosures of polished aluminum and large windows with floor-to-ceiling glass panes. The office building’s first and second floors are fragmented by panels of methacrylate and wood which can be rearranged in the future. Pavements, acoustic ceilings, luminaires, and air conditioning openings are all placed in a certain order, following the pattern of the structure and the facade.
