The new corporate headquarters of Puig – Torre Puig - are located in Plaza Europe, Barcelona’s new commercial and business centre.  It was designed by the architect Rafael Moneo and has a surface area of more than 23,000 m².

The 22-storey tower presents an amazing height of 109 m, of which 8,500 m² were glazed with AGC glass.

The architect chose Stopray Vision-50T on Clearvision, a toughenable double silver solar control coating on low iron float and the laminated security glass Stratobel on Clearvision to create this impressive façade.

The white silkscreen printed glass bands that wrap the building create a certain degree of privacy and provide protection from the heat for the occupants.

Torre Puig has been awarded the Gold LEED energy efficiency certification.
