Sede de Caja Bajadoz
|Description||This project is an important savings bank in the southern Estremadura region of Spain. Taking inspiration from the surrounding landscape, EL designed the office building to have a gently sloping green-roofed plinth from which emerged a striking tower. Large louvers on both volumes help mitigate the sun's impact on the interior, keeping the offices airy and light.|
It serves as a powerful representation of the economy of the community. Located in Badajoz, the bank sits proudly on a plot located on the banks of the Gévora River next to the Puente Real Bridge. Estudio Lamela won the award to design the project, which began in 2007 and was completed in 2010. The building is composed of a large wedge-like plinth in a park setting that is topped off with a green roof. A large tower rises from the center to match the architecture of the nearby prominent bridge.
