Appreciation towards unparelld’arquitectes for providing the following description


The electrical company AgriEnergia moves closer to the city and opens a Customer Service Office in the premises located on one of the corners of the main street of Banyoles. The undertaking includes a screen-light wall and a change in the location of the office’s access. A luminous undulating radiator is set up diagonally across the space. It defines the corner and divides the office into two spaces: a customer reception area and another for offices and private rooms.



After vaguely recognizing the premises from the outside, the visitor enters the building through a door at street level which faces the main avenue. From here, the office opens up successively, creating a new area with each desk which folds out straight from the screen’s base. In parallel, each convexity formed by the undulating screen defines a room on its inner side. This luminous radiator is shaped by several flat glass panes arranged perpendicularly all along the partition. The panes are designed to capture and multiply light, which is the key element in defining the office’s atmosphere. Their repetition and curvature provide the space with a vibrant look which contributes to dematerializing the glass.

The screen is in reality a large lamp designed to attract the attention of passer-bys and is crowned with golden motifs which fix it to the ceiling. The whole design aims to commemorate the key episode of the integration of electrical power into the architecture of the 1920s, while at the same time alluding to one of the shapes taken on by the product offered in this office: light.
