The Practice



El Palenque Business Centre

The Advanced Services Business Center of El Palenque is located on the site of the old El Palenque building of the ‘92 Expo in Seville. It consists of 20,000 m² of office space, 6,000 m² of communal services and 17,000 m² of parking.

The offices are organized into two four-story buildings, enveloped by a facade that creates a central atrium, which serves as a general access point to the entire Business Center.

The facades were designed according to their orientation to minimize solar gain and maximize energy savings.

LEED Gold Pre-certified.
