​A competition win to refurbish the Los Cubos building in Madrid

Los Cubos was designed in 1974 by the French architects Michel Andrault, Pierre Parat, Aydin Guvan and Alain Capieu, and was built between 1976 and 1981. It contains nine floors of office space, totalling 32,000m² GBA, and sits next to the busy M30 motorway.

A fresh and dynamic design

The refurbishment proposal aims to bring a fresh and dynamic design character to the building, while retaining the distinctive ‘cubicle’ principles of the original branding.

Chapman Taylor’s Madrid studio won a competition to refurbish Los Cubos in 2015, with planning approval achieved in 2017.
