Located at the north of Madrid, Spanish architect Rafael de La-Hoz has completed the new Telefónica Headquarters which will house all the employees of the company (about 14,000 people) in one single corporate campus, for the first time in the firm’s history.
The administrative buildings are distributed around a canonical patio or atrium – the Lawn of the campus – according to a system of additions for two different hierarchies. The hierarchy for the strict corporate programme – surfaces and utilities – and the hierarchy that sets out to favour and organise the employees’ social and cooperative activities.
To create the sense of cooperation and engagement, four open areas which are set out in the corners of the premises serve as extensions to the Central Atrium. Three buildings are distributed around each of these squares, as a new addition: two small buildings and one cube-shaped building, which delimit the squares and the total limits of the Campus at the same time.
Specifically for this project, a new type of glass developed which appears transparent from the interior and opaque and clear from the exterior. This provides contrast – bright-dark – to the shadow projected from the system of vertical sunshades that link the two façades structurally, making it visible to the eye. Without forgoing the shiny and transparent qualities that are intrinsic to glass, this glass is also – due to its opaqueness – a visible support for the construction system – the sunshades – which acquire an ornamental quality as they are projected calligraphically over the façade.

With tons of blueprints (over 16,000!) for different furniture designs and outdoor woodwork projectsyou can have a great insight into how to build different things with wood. In it, they tell you about wood, how to design projects, the detailed photographs, patterns, blueprints, materials list and step by step instructions on how to put build them.
The second part shows you the different tools and how to use them, and a complete guide to woodwork carpentry. And the color photographs and drawings are beautiful and show a lot of detail.
