Foster + Partners has redesigned and revitalised Ombú in Madrid, Spain.

Ombú is a transformative office building built for the Spanish infrastructure and energy company, Acciona.

This retrofit project breathes new life into a historic industrial building in Madrid, creating a sustainable exemplar of building reuse and revitalising the surrounding area.

With over 10,000 square metres of new office space, the project unifies a unique mix of private and public land with green landscaping that extends to the adjoining Méndez Álvaro station.

"The project's environmental impact is compatible with the original 2°C aim of the Paris Agreement and its carbon footprint has been carefully measured and controlled," said Foster + Partners.

This project has been shortlisted in the sustainable renovation category of Dezeen Awards 2023.
