La Cai­xa of­fi­ces, Se­vi­lle

Oficinas - - ENGLISH TEXTS -

A hu­ge cen­tral court­yard lit by 187 over­head lamps is at the heart of La Cai­xa’s new of­fi­ces in Se­vi­lle. Hou­sed in a lis­ted buil­ding in the city’s his­to­ric cen­tre, the bank’s new of­fi­ces in the An­da­lu­sian ca­pi­tal subtly ab­sorb the exis­ting spa­ce to crea­te a po­wer­ful dia­lo­gue pun­ctua­ted by arcs, vaults and the ma­te­rials and co­lours from in­te­rior de­sig­ner Fran­cesc Ri­fé’s res­tric­ted but ele­gant pa­let­te. As a fi­nal flou­rish, the whi­te mar­ble floor with its de­li­ca­te mar­quetry has been res­to­red to gi­ve the spa­ce real gra­vi­tas.
