Batlle and Roig designed a double skin façade for this office building in 22@. The inner layer meets the thermal requirements and those of air and water tightness, while the outer layer delimits the building volumetrically and seeks to improve its thermal behaviour.

We are not sure how effective the ceramic baguettes are as a sunscreen, but we do value the rich lights and shadows they generate. The smooth and cold surface of a glazed envelope takes on a much more Mediterranean image when it has an umbraculum over it, creating reflections of the sky, brightness and shadows.
