The Anibal Building houses the headquarters of three companies distributed in three open plan floors. Ground floor and roof are spaces shared by all users.
The facade is composed of different layers that filter light and sound. The outer one consists of a perforated aluminum structure that covers the upper work floors, followed by landscaping and, finally, special soundproof windows.
Workspaces occupy areas free of structural interference – open plans were made possible by the use of ribbed concrete slabs supported by peripheral columns. Building installations and vertical circulation are located around the perimeter of the building.
The complete occupation of the site by the building has brought the challenge of ensuring adequate lighting for its interior, which is solved through the library, which functions as a large-scale skylight. Glass partitions and floors turn the library into a kind of lighting pit, which distributes daylight across all floors while filtering out unwanted radiation.
