Emblematic buildings in Madrid: Torres Blancas

Buying a house in Madrid is not so easy as it all depends on the needs of the buyer and what the seller offers. In order for the buying process to be a success, it is vitally important that supply and demand are balanced and there is an understanding from both sides.

The building of Torres Blancas in Madrid is located in Avenida de América, in Corazón de María Street. This is a great project whose engineer was Francisco Javier Sáenz de Oiza, who was awarded the European Excellence award in the seventies, and which had the participation of renowned engineers such as Carlos Fernández Casado and Leonardo Fernández Troyano. The works continued for some time until in 1968 its construction was finished while Sáenz de Oiza was still living in the building.

Juan Huarte is the owner of the construction company, Huarte, and was the client that promoted its construction. Its purpose was to make an important contribution to Spanish architecture and did so by constructing one of the best buildings at the time between the sixties and seventies.
It is a building of more than 80 metres in height, with a structure formed by cylinders and multitude of balconies wrapped with lattices made from timber. There are 23 floors in total, between offices and private homes, with an additional floor located at the top, a roof with a large swimming pool and several floors intended to be the basement.

This building known as Torres Blancas is, in fact, a gray tower made of reinforced concrete. Initially, the idea was to raise two towers, but for financial reasons, the project followed other courses and had to make several changes. Oiza's dream was to build a unique high-rise building, similar to a tree, with leaves of branches in the shape of terraces, elevators, stairs and other facilities as if they were their conductive system.
