Los Cubos office building refurbishment completes in Madrid

Chapman Taylor's refurbishment of the landmark Los Cubos office building has completed in Madrid.

The renewal of Los Cubos adds fresh character to the 1970s office building while retaining the distinctive “cubic” theme of the original building.

Los Cubos contains nine floors of office space, totalling 32,000m², and sits on a prominent site next to the busy M30 motorway on the eastern approach to Madrid’s city centre. Chapman Taylor’s redesign creates a contemporary and dynamic ambience, bringing the building into the 21st century.

Chapman Taylor’s Madrid studio won a competition to refurbish Los Cubos in 2015, with planning approval achieved in 2017. Congratulations to our clients, Therus and Henderson Park, on the completion of this much-anticipated refurbishment.
