Extension and Refurbishment fo CEP ELCIEGO


The aim of this Project was to provide an elegant, efficient, modern and ecological solution to accommodate a 2 storey extension to an existing building along with the possibility to increase its height if necessary.

All the facades are designed according to its orientation with large windows and shading elements in the south one to maximize passive solar gain.

All circulation spaces are located in the central part of the extension in order to maximize the permeability of both facades.

A new lift solves the existing building´s disable access limations.

Solar panels are installed on the roof.
