The new Basque Health Department Headquarters created by Coll-Barreu Arquitectos is located in Bilbao, Spain, at the crossroad of two important streets.
The double facade solved not only urban requirements but also those concerning energetic, fire-resistant and acoustic insulation from outside. The construction techniques, the operation of the building, the energy exchange, the city and also the very fact, the desire to be… take part in the system definition, but never the elevation or the composition.
The folded fa�ade generates multiple visual from inside to the streets bellow, and also from the highest floors to the landscape that surrounds the city.
