The central offices of Santa & Cole are located in a park of more than 130 hectares to 30km north of Barcelona. Surrounded by green, the interior is designed for creative minds dedicated to editing the design that can move. Previously it was a school and the structure of the building provides the perfect balance between open spaces and individual offices or quiet meeting areas.

To create a more fluid transition between these spaces, we have created a linear wooden membrane on the horizontal axis, which rises vertically to the second floor, where we have double height openings. This membrane has different functions: it organizes, exposes products, creates and divides spaces -but also lets you see other rooms- absorbs doors, shop windows, niches, shelves and storage areas.

There is a showroom and a museum on the first floor that can be visited by clients, architects, designers and students. The design reflects the corporate identity in its simplicity.
