TÀPIES BUILDING

Client : Gestora Hotelera S.A., Architect : Orobitg – A&U, Area :  17.548  m²
Project and construction: 2008/10

This mixed use building is located in the urban area of -Clot d’Emprivat -, in Escaldes, Andorra. Three-story basement for parking, three commercial levels, two floors for offices and three levels for residential use.

The excavation required the installation of an anchored micro-pile contiguous wall,   important groundwater pumping out strategies were implemented.

The building structure was designed in reinforced concrete. Solid slabs with spans of up to 7.5m supported by columns and lift/stair cores created a sensible regular scheme even to place escalators in the commercial floors and solve the parking layout (bays, ramps and driveways) in the basement levels.
