DISA Headquarters, Tenerife
The tower is shaped by some external cuts, providing a twisting sensation through its vertical development, resulting of bending two of the rectangle facades and twisting the outcome geometry through different heights. The twists of the geometry borns from the surrounding heights wich provide the image of a boxes grouping.
This shaping game it's produced through the movement lines, without generating any loose on the net floor area. In the interior of the tower, a series of double and triple areas appear to increase the space and quality, acting as a shaping element of the different program groups.
The ground floors are reserved for a commercial center where a public passage is connecting the street to the park, providing a forest which allows shadow and fresh air in summer. But different access to the tower (offices and corporate centers) is produced trough a porch and a double high entrance, providing a shelter to the entrance. In the dwellings volume, passing through apartments are set up.
