The project program is divided into two zones: the workshop and the office. The workshop is a free space where the welding work, paint work and parking take place. The office is an area where the workshop agents can rest, eat and take a shower. A mezzanine is created over the office area for additional storage.

In order to get both natural light and privacy, the exterior walls are composed of a polycarbonate facade that let the sunlight get through the building and a wooden cladding that hide the users from outside.
