The design of the newly-created GOOGLE MADRID HQ, designed by Jump Studios, will revolutionize the concept of office design on the Iberian Peninsula. The London-based firm that was responsible for the design and that recently opened its own branch in Lisbon, has used innovative materials for the Google HQ in Madrid, creating a sustainable and inspiring space for the workers.

The project covers two floors of one of the most prestigious skyscrapers in Madrid, Torre Picasso (1982), designed by the American architect of Japanese origin Minoru Yamasaki.

The presence of wooden arches as a central element, referring to the spatial and material qualities of traditional Spanish architecture, have been used consistently to achieve a major improvement in the use of the available area and a distinct, relaxed and at the same time sophisticated atmosphere.

The overall result is an office environment with a high degree of flexibility and functionality that meets the client's aspirations in a single and welcoming space, with a strong local character.
