NODE was born as a materialization of a change of mindset, not only in architecture but also in everything around us. A philosophy that revolves around a new way of seeing the world, prioritizing human well-being, sustainability, respect for nature and taking advantage of new technology.

Following the essential values of the company Andorra Telecom, the building is based on empathy, towards users, pedestrians, neighbors, but above all towards society. The essence of new architecture is in focusing buildings at the service of people. A public building has a dual responsibility: it must respond to its internal needs but it must also serve to improve the environment where it is located.The new headquarters of Andorra Telecom, is located in one of the most active areas of Andorra la Vella, at a strategic point of relationship between the commercial area (Meritxell Avenue) and the neighbourhood area (Prada Ramon). The proposed building acts as a link between the two urban plots, adding value to the existing environment.
