Project Ombu - EA Sports HQ in Spain

Asset description

Ombú, located in the Méndez Álvaro district of Madrid, stands as a testament to the transformative power of regeneration. Originally constructed in the early 20th century as a Gasworks Factory, the building fell into disuse and faced demolition. However, in 2017, it was acquired by Acciona and underwent a comprehensive rehabilitation led by the renowned architectural firm Foster + Partners.

The rehabilitation project sought to preserve the building's historical heritage while adapting it to modern needs. The original brick façade was restored, and a new timber structure was inserted within the existing shell. This innovative design not only provides flexible office space but also showcases the building's industrial past.

Ombú is more than just a striking example of adaptive reuse. It is also a catalyst for the regeneration of the Méndez Álvaro district. The project has created new jobs and opportunities, and it has helped to improve the air quality and green space in the area.

The building is a powerful symbol of how thoughtful design and careful planning can transform a neglected area into a thriving community. It is a testament to the power of regeneration and a source of inspiration for future projects.
