Bauporte developed a set of unique Tall All Glass Doors for Torre Europa

Bauporte developed a set of unique Tall All Glass Doors for Torre Europa

Located at the heart of Madrid’s business district, the 120-meter high Torre Europa building was extensively renovated to enhance it's overall appearance and become one of the smartest office complexes in the world.

The open and transparent new entrance hall, designed by Callison RTKL, has been built using the very latest glass construction techniques.

The cube shaped entrance 10x10x12m is self-supporting through the seamless integration of tall glass panels, and interconnected glass fins and beams.

A glass and steel canopy overhangs the lobby and wraps around the side of the building to connect the plaza to the main entrance. Bauporte was invited to develop a set of unique Tall All Glass Doors.

The client had a series of challenging requirements:

• the doors should look like the façade, and create a seamless integrated appearance
• the doors had to be tall and elegant
• the doors needed to be self-supporting, without any connection to the façade.
• the doors needed incorporate collapsible wings to open the doors in the event of an emergency
• and last but not least, the glass canopy should be extended to the outside to give a space for the name of the building: TORRE EUROPA

Bauporte were able to utilize all their expertise and experience to design a fully bespoke door for Torre Europa and once again rewrite what is possible in the design of custom entrance solutions. See in this movie how this 6 meter tall door wings fully collapse automatically!
