A 21st century icarus designed to beat the sun

PS magazine publishes a report about Castellana 77 in its September-October issue.

With silent roundness, the Castellana 77 building emerges in the district of Azca, after decades in disuse, as a new icon in the financial heart of Madrid thanks to the intervention of Luis Vidal + Arquitectos.

The old original 1977 tower has been converted into a 62-meter high-rise office building that has already uniquely marked the pulse and skyline of the city and has moved into place, since the completion of the rehabilitation process about months, at the head of energy efficiency and environmental respect with a sustainable and aesthetically emblematic building that leaves its mark on the retina.
