New offices of the Botín Foundation in Madrid, Spain by MVN architects

Wednesday, November 28th, 2012

Article source: MVN architects

The Botín Foundation has established its new offices in Madrid by choosing a 1920s industrial building by the architect Gonzalo Aguado, which was for years the Silversmith workshop of Luis Espuñes and more recently the Vinçon shop in Madrid.

The peculiarity of this building has given us the opportunity to create a referen­ce point. With this in mind, the new project attempts to retain the spirit of the original industrial character, in keeping with the same philosophy of the Foundation, which is a driving force for developing talent.

Hue plus

The alternative space Hue+ is a series of facilities seamlessly integrated into the photo studio, where the visual expression of ‘eating’ is the particular subject of photographic exploration. Unlike an ordinary photo studio that is a closed box to be used merely as a shooting equipment, Hue+ is an office space, a cafe, a library and a kitchen that the users have control over, making them feel like staying longer for its own sake and enjoy the experience.
