Rather than building a brand new office, Spanish communication satellite company Hispasat chose to renovate their existing headquarters with a stunning perforated facade that actually improves the performance of the existing building. The original circular office building was constructed in the 1970s, and over the last few decades the structure fell out of date while also suffering from excess solar heat gain and glare. To solve the ongoing problems, Herreros Arquitectos proposed adding a new exterior skin that would control solar radiation and illumination while giving the building a space-age aesthetic.
