The client's requirements - a company specializing in health research and technology - were clear: efficiency, security, and flexibility for possible annexations or additions in terms of operation, as well as technology, precision, order, and clarity in terms of image.

Located on a rectangular plot between party walls, we propose a four-story building for offices and three stories for parking and storage areas. The plan layout is designed in such a way that allows free plans without structural supports in between.

Additionally, we propose folding and sliding panels that provide the possibility of subdividing the spaces, which are naturally lit through a triple height void above the lobby area.
