The proposal for the Gris building intervenes in a virtual preexistence. A ready and complete project, which is intended to be improved. Having to maintain the structure, infrastructure networks, and legal constraints of an already approved project, push any intervention only to the field of interior design, which is important, but insufficient for the refoundation of the building as an expression of the concept of VH as a company and as a “city builder”.


Therefore, the challenge is always to know how to establish the sufficient level of intervention for this improvement to be possible and the limit from which the process in progress gains degrees of infeasible complexity.


The project starts immediately in the way we enter the property, reformulating the base of the building which, like a molded topography, also creates the social spaces on the ground floor, so that they become a single and indivisible piece.


On this base rests a delicate façade intervention, in dialogue with the “existing” windows and a finishing of the building that does not let the chance of the technical profusion of chimneys, elevators and water tanks take over the “skyline”.
