The new Gamesa headquarters located in Pamplona, Navarra, Spain were designed by the practice of Vaillo-Irigaray y Asociados in a business park that is surrounded by roads to ensure the necessary infrastructure.

Gamesa is a company which focuses on wind turbines used in green energy production so that the design also focuses on being eco-friendly and suited to the company’s philosophy. The façade has the shape of a transparent tank which provides abundant natural light and a great view from each side.

Due to the cylindrical shape of the structure the building has a façade surface reduced by 35% and this optimizes the form factor of the building increasing its functionality. The location of the project is on a small hill and thus it can be spotted from far away.

The interior palette has green as the predominant color to connect with the green hill and with the firm’s ideals. The illumination is provided with the aid of LEDs and you can see the activity of the employees from outside although there is no corporate label on the building, preferring to stir the curiosity of the passers-by.
