Completed in a record time of only seven months, the project designed by architect Marco Rocha brings in 3000m2 three studios in an area of 1000 m2, a warehouse of props / set design and other of mobile resources in an area of 1000m2, the remaining 1000m2 are a major central area which is divided into four distinct areas: the social area which includes the cafeteria / restaurant, the module entry and reception / waiting area; Block A which includes dressing rooms, wardrobe room and characterization; Block B which includes studio and production control rooms; and finally the 1st floor which includes several offices and the editorial room.

The Project is part of a pre-industrial existence, characterized by its spatial coverage with some translucent parts, allowing the occasional use of natural light.

As such, the concept is developed from the central zone. A black box partially illuminated by zenithal light emerging from promptly located skylights, and from where two crescent-shaped architectural volumes are developed.

The space is then characterized by an interstitial void of the two modules, each corresponding to different programmatic functions. This emptiness leads to the primary circulation objective of the project by allowing access from it to the three studios, two warehouses, first floor, the cafeteria / restaurant and the main entrance.

The entire project has a symbiotic dichotomy between space and place and between color and scenography, being that the architectural program has the peculiarity of being a space not only to work but also to visit and socialize.

The color works then as a method of self architectural reference and of the place, where black acts as a counterpoint to both the zenithal and the artificial light.

With an investment of 2.5 million Euros in the new logistics complex and seventeen years after the founding, SIC network sees greatly improved its infrastructure and its production capacity.
