ABB Head Office

Braga | Portugal

A construction company headquarters has a set of complex and interdependent relationships, to which joins the difficulty of everything being big and having the need for changes and additions. So, instead of trying to control the program we chose to connect the links. The main building is a path of two storey with a U glass facade, to which are coupled the department buildings. The stable and linear building is opposed by the diverse and irregular volumes for the functioning of the complex. The plan was not done in its final form, because it was conceived from a small plot of land, increasing now with new land acquisitions. This concept allows the construction project to relate to the new needs, while maintaining an overall image.
