Office Tower Zaisa
Irun lies on the France-Spanish border in the Basque Country. Here the transport company Zaisa occupies a large industrial area on both sides of the highway. It's a city that looks a lot larger than it actually is, and the newly built office tower of Zaisa contributes to this image. The tower is 38m high, has 8 office floors on top of the larger ground floor. The highest floor is partly office space, party outside roof garden. On top is a technical floor behind the uniform glass façade. The tower functions as an orientating beacon, enhances the identity of the 'city of transport' of Zaisa. It's emblematic for the impetus, activities and economic of this region and serves as a new reference point on one of the entrances to Irun. Architect Ángel de la Hoz, who also designed the Palace of Justice in the centre of Irun, created a remarkable glass building dominated by large glass windows asymmetrical distributed over the façade. From a distance the building is almost transparent.
