With a 4180
m2 program involving warehouses and offices, the
building unfolds trough the linearity of the platform.
This linearity and horizontality of the building break
with the access doors creating movement on the facade and a natural light
entrance as well.
Giving emphasis on the access, an element that
overcomes the facade without hiding what happens behind it was proposed,
creating a contrast in between the volumes of each, emphasized by the change of
color and material. The access volume holds the “showroom” creating a roofed
uncovered area that with the help of a water mirror makes that this one floats
on top of the other.
A north orientation and a tree filled view define the
placements of the executive privates, and the board meeting room. On the other
end you can find an antique nave industrial that was kept to give the complex a
contrast and a look to the past.
The access lobby extends across a hall that leads into
a great central patio that its located in
the center of the project and
besides splitting the different areas of the project, it organizes them
and works as a distribution centre.
The inner spaces have a visual prolongation emphasized
by the use of the same material on both the inside and the outside floor. The
materials were carefully chosen to harmonize the complex and to define inner
and outer spaces all within functionality and durability required for this kind
In the office areas a modular gray toned carpet was
proposed and on the common areas like the meeting rooms, eating hall, and
terraces with hammered marble was proposed to give texture to this areas.
The connection in between both volumes and the
movements of the corners in cantilever along with the verticality of the doors
give dynamism to the building.
