The new headquarters in Madrid for the U.S. pharmaceutical company Gilead is by Bene.

Gilead Sciences stands for global dimensions. Listed among the 500 largest U.S. corporations on the stock exchange, the internationally active pharmaceutical and biotechnology company and its 4,000 employees specialise in the research and market introduction of therapies to combat life-threatening diseases such as HIV, hepatitis B or influenza.

Modernity and innovation are indispensable in this industry. From the beginning, it was beyond question that the new headquarters in Madrid would also incorporate Gilead’s corporate values into its offices. With its slants and curves, the reception area already makes an extraordinary statement. Design and colour emphasise peaceful seriousness of purpose and expertise. The constantly recurring citation of the corporate logo in its individual elements provides discreet presence.

In the exclusive Parque Empresarial Cristalia, an open office was developed to meet the needs of approximately 120 employees. Individual offices for concentrated work, communication and support areas, meeting and conference rooms, reception and management – every detail is functional and aesthetically appealing with the comprehensive colour concept from the Bene "Natural" series.

The conference rooms were outfitted with the AL series by Bene. In the open office, 3T table panels facilitate the use of a third working level. Bug and Filo ensure perfect seating comfort. The space-saving timetables by Wilkhahn are particularly captivating for their flexibility.
