Department of Health of Basque Lands, Spain Notwithstanding all these restrictions, specialists from Coll-Barreu Arquitectos agency made something unbelievable. They built a unique construction that doesn’t have analogues in the whole world. The wonderful glass building is situated on the beautiful historical street that was built in the 19th century. The unique seven-stored building is taken by the Department of Health of Basque Lands. Two floors are used for laboratories. Glass walls cover offices, conference rooms, records.

The building has two basement floors that are used as a parking zone. The original façade is made from glass panels and has not only decorative but also practical function.

Since the building has finished the building became a popular touristic sightseeing. A lot of people like to take pictures of it, especially in the evening. At this time the rooms are full of light and it looks quite unusual. Next - Hotel W
