WPP, the British communications conglomerate, has chosen a large building in the Chamberí district, to group all their companies in Spain under one roof. The remodelling of the chosen building includes extensive roof gardens that will be enjoyed not only by the estimated 2.500 employees, but also by the surrounding neighbors.
The roof garden on two levels includes shade trees and a large perimeter planting area making use of native plants and shrubs that help to create an urban oasis, a Nature hotspot in the center of the city.
Rainwater collection to benefit the plants, a drip irrigation system with centralized automation connected to rain sensors, and the use of plant species with low water requirements have all contributed to BREEAM certification.
