Spanish building for high-tech research into sustainability

Just completed last year, the Pitagoras building and Tecnova Foundation’s headquarters are now in a new science and technology park in Alameria, Spain.

1 PITA

Both buildings are committed to high-tech research and development as well as the promotion of sustainability.

2 PITA

Designed by Ferrer Arquitectos, the research buildings feature high-performance façades that maximize daylighting, promote energy-efficiency and include living gardens all throughout their interiors.

3 PITA

The Pitagoras building’s name is an amalgamation of PITA and Greek philosopher and mathematician Pythagoras.

7 PITA

The south-facing exterior is covered in a large array of horizontal louvres to shield the interior from the direct sun. Stepped in from the louvres is a fully glazed façade that lets in lots of natural daylight into the office and lab spaces.

4 PITA

An interior passageway is lit from above with skylights and each floor features a meeting room that protrudes out from the building.

6 PITA

Inside this central strip are hanging plants and planted courtyards that add life to the otherwise modern and modest environment.

5 PITA

Both buildings have a Class A energy rating and were designed to meet the USGBC’s LEED certification and the European Green Building Certification.
