Torre Zaragoza: a residential complex soaring into the sky

PORCELANOSA Group finishes embellish the Aragonese capital's tallest building, designed by Grupo Plaza 14

Some developments are destined to redefine the skyline of the cities they tower over. Meet Torre Zaragoza. An imposing skyscraper designed with the environment and Passivhaus principles in mind, located in one of Zaragoza's most dynamic spots.

At 106 metres high, Torre Zaragoza is the city's tallest building. Located just metres from the Tercer Milenio bridge and Torre del Agua, the set of structures creates the appearance of three charismatic buildings in dialogue. The bright and sleek construction is visible from kilometres away, housing 30 floors and 285 homes (all exterior-facing) boasting terraces with unrivalled views over the provincial capital. The complex also comes with five parking levels with 441 spaces, storage rooms, two swimming pools (one on the eighteenth floor and another with a children's pool area at the foot of the building), a gym, paddle tennis court and green spaces.

The impressive residential complex is the work of Grupo Plaza 14, and was designed by architecture studio Ingennus Urban Consulting with interiors featuring PORCELANOSA Group finishes. The spacious lobby combines concrete-look Newport Natural porcelain floor tiles with PAR-KER® Smart Tanzania Almond ceramic wood by Porcelanosa, providing a warm and welcoming yet functional ambience. The walls feature Ice Tanzania Almond ceramic tiles (discreet, wood-look slats), continuing through to the staircase access area. The white desk made in Krion® K · Life 1100 is a particular highlight, imbuing the entrance with its own unique personality.

This same restrained yet elegant décor scheme extends to the interiors of the homes, with floor areas ranging from 68 m2 to 168 m2. Each home comes with a spacious open-plan Gamadecor kitchen and Krion® K · Life 1100 worktops. They also boast PAR-KER® Smart Tanzania Almond floor tiles and Metropolitan Caliza XL ceramic wall tiles. In the bathrooms, solutions by Noken (Acro Compact toilet, City N Chromo shower, Smart Line mirror, Pure Line washbasin and Pure LineWood shelving) complete the look.

The standout swimming pool areas are equally noteworthy - one at street level and the other on the eighteenth floor. They feature Vela Natural non-slip porcelain tiles by Porcelanosa, installed with the Butech STE system. The solution is especially suited to spaces like these, thanks to its technical performance and ultra-flat design, enabling rainwater to filter through the joints between the tiles.

Sustainable homes

Torre Zaragoza was built according to sustainable and energy-efficient Passivhaus standards, which aim to achieve buildings with almost zero energy consumption. All the homes benefit from excellent acoustic and thermal insulation and are heated/cooled via air source heat pumps. This technology extracts energy from the air (a combustion-free process, meaning zero emissions) and distributes the heat via a wet underfloor heating system.

The modern ventilation system continuously supplies filtered, dust-free air; meaning there's no need to open windows for ventilation. Yet another groundbreaking concept to add to Torre Zaragoza's credentials. The New York-inspired skyscraper destined to change the skyline of the Aragonese capital forever.
