Great Glass Buildings of the World: The Selgas Cano Architecture office, Madrid, Spain
Here at Aquamark, we’re fascinated by glass and the fabulous eye-catching structures it can create. On our blog, we’re showcasing a series of fabulous buildings around the world which utilise this attractive and versatile material in their designs, to breath-taking effect. Last week, we showed you the stunning Basque Health Department building in Spain. We’re sticking with Spain for the time being to show you the truly unique Selgas Cano Architecture Office in Madrid.
Back to Nature
The Selgas Cano architects certainly made their name known with this amazing piece of building design. Creating their own office to showcase their skills, their work space offers a fresh view of its surroundings for its staff and visitors every single day.

Situated in the middle of a quiet forest, this amazing office building brings its staff into close contact with nature during their day-to-day work through the clear glass outer walls and ceiling. Located amongst glorious greenery in the spring and summer, autumnal auburn in the fall and wondrous snowy white in the winter, the office sits directly on the ground, giving it a wonderful earth-sheltered feeling.
A Building for the Changing Seasons
Throughout the year, the fabulous foliage surrounding the building grows and changes with the seasons and the expanse of clear glass gives the occupants of the office a fantastic view of the scenery. Imagine being able to witness the deep reds and oranges of autumn or the new green leaves of the Spring up close as you work! While most of us are lucky if the views from our small office windows change in a year, this creative building gives its occupants a new perspective every day.
How to Clean This Amazing Building
The ceiling and side walls of this building would need regular cleaning to ensure a clear view of the surroundings at all times. Water fed poles could easily reach all of this low-level structure, leaving a crisp, clean appearance with no residue. Stray leaves may also need to be cleared away from the ceiling – the only problem with the natural surroundings!
