[Excerpt translated from Spanish]
“The objective of BBVA’s new workplace strategy was twofold, according to Kim Van Holsbeke, SOM Associate Director. First, ‘the company wanted to work with SOM to support and promote its initiative to create a common culture among BBVA’s global facilities. The second objective was the implementation of physical strategies that resulted from this repositioning and helped solidify the common culture of BBVA,’ he says.
SOM, with headquarters in the United States, United Kingdom, China, Dubai, and India produced the general interior design standards for BBVA Global, in addition to new structural designs for select BBVA offices: the Operations Center in Mexico City (architecture, engineering, MEP, and interiors), the headquarters in Mexico City (interiors), the headquarters in Madrid (interiors) and the Technological Center in Atizapán (architecture, engineering and interiors).”
