CLIENT: Región de Murcia

LOCATION: Murcia, Spain

COLLABORATOR: Salvador Perez Arroyo

An invited competition was initiated to design an ecologically friendly and predominantly passive energy office complex for the expanding city of Murcia in southern Spain. The project was a collaboration between CRAB Studio and Salvador Perez Arroyo.

The proposed techniques included the implementation of a ‘damp core,’ the use of bamboo filter walls, the integration of computer-controlled shutters, and a thoughtful configuration of office space to prevent overheating.

The project was poised to advance to the detailed design stage, however the economic crisis in Spain in late 2008 led to a halt in further development work. Despite this setback, the City of Murcia maintains a keen interest in the project.
