Revesol is a metalworking industry that produces machinery and supplies for mining.
The project for the plant is based in a composition of relatively independent volumes. Each volume is developed with the best form and materials in order to meet the specific requirements of its function.
The office building is volumetrically connected with both the service building and dining hall, so to shape the facade and image of the project, leaving open spaces with vegetation, which sets distances and generates circulation routes between the volumes. These spaces are defined as places for recreation and primarily as an expansion of the dining hall.
The entire project perimeter leaves a lane that directs flows and functional relations between the volumes.
In the background is the production plant building, a large volume wich its interior is arranged with aisles marked by overhead lighting and vegetation, with small gardens in the meeting points, which allows to generate a kinder working environment.
The rear of the terrain is left as a recreation area and as a possibilty for future growth.
A volume with contemporary, clean and simple architecture, an open floor with the essential structure and a clear vertical and humid core.
The deep overhang of the roof for solar control shelters the north façade.
This volume is set with a metallic structure both pillars and beams, with slab decking for the mezzanine and metallic truss with plate ceiling for the second floor with Zincalume cladding.
