The project consists of the expansion of the existing production unit to the west and south, with the construction of a new pavilion and an administrative building. The configuration of the site contributed to the solution adopted, which sought to maximize the area of the industrial nave, leaving the southern part of the site for the administrative area.
This area is located along the new road, giving rise to a curved concrete building, marked by vertical aluminum profiles, which has tried to differentiate itself from the industrial volume, highlighting its function as an administrative area.
The east corridor, which covers the industrial nave, connects the administrative area to the existing building. With a strong plastic component, related to the mold industry, he tried, through his language, to convey a concept of contemporaneity by associating the company brand.
