This new headquarters for Tagus Gás in Cartaxo, fifty miles from the Portuguese capital, is the country’s first office building to receive BREEAM certification. Designed by international practice Saraiva & Associados in partnership with consultants Ecochoice, the structure features an array of sustainability measures aimed at reducing its environmental impact and optimizing its energy efficiency.
The envelope is a core element of this sustainability strategy, which covers the building’s entire life cycle—from manufacturing and construction to utilization and post-occupancy. The facade system features extensive high-performance glazing veiled by a perforated skin made of sustainably produced and recyclable Swisspearl panels.
