The building was adapted to its natural surroundings, respecting the canyons, studying the topography and the views for the architecture to dialogue with the landscape. The development of new workspaces should coexist with the environment. We are revaluating many of the elements of traditional architecture, such as the use of natural light, local materials, natural ventilation and efficient water use in order to bring about an architecture that is more harmonious and respectful with regard to its surroundings. With this project, which received LEED gold certification, we sought a new working environment that responds to this philosophy.
