Text description provided by the architects. The building is placed in a lot next to an important avenue and it runs for almost 100 meters, (0.62 mi) with most of them being in an “L” scheme. In the vertex, another volume with it’s own character accommodates the offices and the services for the workers.

The space of the warehouse is conformed by a sequence of simple, rigid frames. The essence of the building towards the avenue demanded a special treatment for the facade. In response to the topography, a concrete basement is generated that coincides with the level of the floor on the inside, over which the black block facade with glass block pieces is constructed, producing a game of interior-exterior lights depending on the hour.

The volume of the offices is defined by concrete walls with a rhythm of empty spaces from floor to ceiling. One of the walls enters to the warehouse diagonally intersecting the orthogonal geometry producing a division between the office and the services areas.

The concrete slabs break in two points to permit the entrance of natural light through the ground level. One of the generated light entrances is between the concrete wall and the services areas and the other one forms a central and longitudinal fringe in the area of the offices, which accommodates the stairs and orders and articulates the different spaces by using bridges.

All the materials are exposed. For the concrete slabs, steel beams, steel decks and concrete, and for the division of the spaces a system of vertical pine wood strips, black aluminum angles and glass.
