From the architect. The Krauss Maffeir operating facilities was built inside an industrial building that could not be structurally touched. Additionally, the design program called for enough space for exhibitions and heavy equipment maneuvering of up to 50 tons. casaPública responded by designing a freestanding two level structure that can be dismantled.

It’s facade and form, as well as the selection of materials, are the strict result of function and the required program. In addition, the facility has a call center, two showrooms, training area, kitchen – eating room, a heavy equipment warehouse, a meeting room, offices for 25 people and service areas.

The corrugated aluminum panels used for the facade give privacy and security to the personnel from any possible accidents. The glass transparency separating the office area from the showroom allows permanent visual contact between management and technical tasks.
