    The simple and rotund volumes are defined with two layers that interpret the horizontality of the landscape, one dark that settles on the ground plane and another white one, these are the determinants of the design that allow a formal and similar language to all buildings despite their particular character, giving special emphasis to brewing as the start of the process and reference in the landscape.

    The design included sustainability strategies creating favorable environments for work and production, as a contribution to minimize the environmental impact generated by the buildings; double facades, natural overhead lighting, cross ventilation, saving devices, louvers and eaves, are some of the strategies.

    The materials minimize maintenance activities in addition to their industrial character. The challenge was the operation within a plant with a strong tradition, existing and running, but acupuncture  allowed the functional link and language between the new and the existing.
