From the architect. A volume of architecture simple and emphatic, which reinterprets allegorically anonymous architectures of the central valley, sits on the softer mountains of olives, looking subtly with its wooden facades and colors that stand out with the luminosity of the place.

The body will mimic the geography and planning lines of trees on their facades. It uses sustainable technologies, creating the enabling environment for work and olive oil production quality.

Location to be used only as a reference. It could indicate city/country but not exact address. Cite: "Olisur: Olive Oil factory / Guillermo Hevia (GH+A)" 21 Apr 2009. ArchDaily. Accessed . <http://www.archdaily.com/19631/olisur-olive-oil-factory-guillermo-hevia-gha/>
