The building is integrated into the Barajas neighborhood, proposing a new green ring that connects to the surroundings, to create an attractive ecosystem for change and a transformative building for the neighborhood. A disruptive project with magnetic activity and a driving force for the change of models of living, a building with private and community spaces, open streets, suspended orchards and vertical gardens.
The program includes 73 affordable rental houses, 25 tourist apartments and a co-working area complemented by a cafeteria and / or proximity stores, laundry and other services. A housing mix valid for both stable and temporary options. A building that aspires to low consumption, seeking zero energy balance, with a carbon-free construction and a wooden building structure, passive architecture and efficient facilities.
Key Components & Solutions
100% of all CO2 emissions are expected to be sequestered over the lifespan of the project by means of renewable energy, centralized and efficient climate control systems, low carbon building methods and co-sharing community benefits
Almost 80% reduction in CO2 emissions compared to the Business As Usual models.
Utilizes symbiotic ecosystem principles through co-sharing of residential, office and leisure spaces
Daylight, wind direction and climate control measures are maximized during the architectural design phase to reduce energy demand
The design includes green elements, such as the creation of a facade of vertical gardens covered in urban orchards and gardens. The building aims to create a green belt around the entire neighborhood surrounding the airport.
Presentation of the site
The area is located in the Barrio del Aeropuerto (Airport Neighborhood), district of Barajas, to the north-east of the city of Madrid, next to Madrid Barajas-Adolfo Suárez Airport.
