FOR THE DESIGN OF THE TOWER, WE WERE LOOKING FOR SOMETHING MORE TIMELESS, WHERE ITS BEAUTY LIES IN ITS MATHEMATICAL PROPORTIONS AND SIMPLICITY.

  • Client Torre Espacio SA
  • Location Madrid Spain
  • Size 180.000M2
  • Status Finished

For the design of Caleido, we didn’t want a tower that would compete with the other four. We didn’t want a trendy tower with spectacular and impossible shapes.

We were looking for something more timeless, where its beauty lies in its mathematical proportions and the simplicity of its rectangular shape, a base and a tower united in an almost humble T-shaped building.

A slender black tower, creating a simple monument among the four larger towers, where the black color of the glass evokes the memory of the first historic towers of Chicago.

With its height of 160 meters (180 from Monforte de Lemos), it’s a small building compared to the other four towers but still stands out for the minimalist beauty of its proportions, its striking slenderness, and it powerfully exemplifies how in this case, less is more. In fact, the tower’s narrowest section has a span of only 17 meters, resembling a monolith that, due to its purpose, becomes a monument to knowledge, health, and social integration.
