For the second consecutive year, Repsol has topped the Dow Jones Sustainability World and European Indexes (DJSA) that rates the top 15 of the world’s 125 listed Oil and Gas companies. This position is reward for Repsol’s management who have recently completed the construction of their new headquarters in Madrid; a sustainable building, designed according to the LEED-NC standards and the needs of its employees, reflecting the culture of the company that is organized around economic, social and environmental performance.
Nearly 7,000lm of pleinAir partitions have been installed in this building which is testament of comfort and sustainable development. The partitions were installed in four different heights, 2900mm where the spaces needed to be enclosed, then 1250, 1400 and 1750mm high free standing partitions (cloisonnettes) where the spaces remain partly open. The architects have blended brilliantly the textures and colours, with expanses of wooden panels working in harmony with the structure of the carpet and the sophisticated design of the partitions.
Solid panels have been specially designed for this project, they consist of 5 white 2,700mm modules arranged horizontally to accentuate the width of the space, cleverly extending onto the glazing. An ultrafine aluminium junction between the panes of glass, elegantly dress these joints.
Partitions and cloisonnettes are illuminated in Repsol’s colours; orange, red, blue and grey, the PVB coloured interlayer within the glass changes depending on which building it has been installed. The white, red and blue partitions play both the role of visual display and definition of the space. The interplay between the coloured partitions and the furniture is particularly sophisticated, particularly when illuminated by light that gives them the appearance of multi-coloured lanterns.
