The Audi Terminal in Madrid marks the first implementation in Spain of the Corporate Architecture concept developed by Allmann Sattler Wappner for Audi’s worldwide network of dealerships. The Terminal will act as a model for all further projects in Spain with regard to execution and sustainability standards.
As a key feature of Audi’s Corporate Architecture, three-dimensional asymmetrical curved ramps carve into the building’s cubature. They can be seen from afar through the transparent sections of the façade, drawing attention to the showrooms and, at the same time, communicating the motoring prowess. In an aim to integrate the Terminal into Madrid’s Las Rozas business park, the compact, modular structure is molded to the sloped typography existing between the highway and the train tracks. The building also responds to Madrid’s particular climate with a sophisticated heating, ventilation and air conditioning system.
