Curriculum studio / partecipanteBBVA’s new layout provides 2.45 square meters of open outdoor space for each employee, seamlessly integrated into various moments of the building’s design. The facility also provides a subsidized meal plan with a full service cafeteria to all employees. This not only significantly reduces the number of BBVA’s 5,100 employees that leave the building during lunch time, which would otherwise provide serious traffic-flow concerns, but also serves to increase internal revenue and further highlight the building as a fully developed ecosystem.
