Offices for the Castilla León Government in Zamora
Alberto Campo Baeza
Castilla y León, Spain

Madrid-based architect Alberto Campo Baeza has created the new headquarters for the Castilla León region’s government, located in the ancient heart of the city facing Zamora’s old cathedral. The design offers a successful mix of glass minimalism and a smart site-location strategy. Like a Babushka doll the building’s first layer is an enclosing stonewall, then a garden of air and finally a completely transparent glass house.
