The Arteixo Tourism Office by Alejandro García Rodríguez is located in the north-western Spanish village. This futuristic structure reinvents an old structure, giving it a bold new look worthy of a sci-fi setting.
Alejandro García Rodríguez transformed an abandoned bus station, converting it into a modernized office building. Using a small budget, the architect and his team aimed to create a distinctive landmark for the small town, ensuring that their design had artistic presence while remaining functional.
The team enveloped the building's existing shell with glossy metal elements arranged in a geometric pattern. These visually bold panels also work to shield the structure from the sun's rays, adding to its sustainability factor. The Arteixo Tourism Office features a modern and ecologically responsible design that is sure to garner this small town plenty of attention.
