Torre Europa Office Refurbishment
CallisonRTKL upgrades this striking Madrid landmark, to enhance its modern appeal for a target market of international office tenants.
Originally constructed in 1985 in the heart of Madrid’s business district and across from Santiago Bernabéu Stadium—home of the Real Madrid football team—the 120-meter high Torre Europa is a striking landmark in need of key upgrades.
CallisonRTKL reoriented the entrance and revamped the lobby, providing for more light and transparency. A sophisticated glass cube with an attractive water feature serves as the building’s new front door. A second entrance on the ground level enhances outdoor connectivity, improving linkage to a public plaza surrounded by dining and other amenities. A hanging canopy above the lobby wraps around the side of the building to connect the plaza to the main entrance. All internal lift lobbies and cross lobbies were upgraded accordingly, complemented by new finishes, stone floors, contemporary lighting and a consistent branding identity. CallisonRTKL also replaced the tower’s exposed concrete façade with stainless steel, enhancing its modern appeal for a target market of international office tenants.
