One of Colombia's largest urban regenerations

Our Madrid studio developed an innovative entry for a competition to develop an office-led, mixed-use building as part of the City CAN (National Administrative Center of Colombia) regeneration project - one of the largest urban renewal projects in the country, which will see 86 hectares of land developed and existing buildings renovated in the centre of Bogota.

Attractive and landscaped

The 100,000m², mixed-use development will host 6,000 central government officials from the National Administrative Centre of Colombia (CAN). The building will also cater for 1,800 visitors, as well as providing retail and customer service offices.

The CAN project will become a strategic location not only for the government but for the city, creating an attractive and green urban area.

Relaxing spaces

The building's ground floor creates a vibrant space which will welcome visitors and occupants and guide them towards the other floors. Mixed-use spaces are located at the first floor, where there is a large courtyard garden space in which to dwell and relax. The second floor hosts leisure and relaxation spaces, including a vertical garden and a large podium gazebo.

Chapman Taylor’s competition proposal was designed in collaboration with local partners Ambientti Construction and Real Estate Company.
