Text description provided by the architects. The project of the cutting and sewing factory is an idea managed by women from the San Isidro village in the township of Puerto Caldas in Pereira, Colombia, accompanied by the community centre that is a neighbourhood organization that promotes educational and cultural strategies.

We join this process accompanied by interdisciplinary agents and an empowered community. This community offered the possibility of recognising the symbolic links of the inhabitants that are interwoven in daily life and establishes bonds of trust. These links were added to the discoveries made in the landscape, the starting premises for designing the textile space.

The project idea arises from the rural condition in a specific context, where the plain projected by the river valley, the distant hills, the sunset over the west, the corn crops and the fading blue sky, are the fundamental premises that delimit and configure the constructed idea.

The morphological understanding of the neighbourhood determines the implantation in the terrain. The unfavourable climatic incidence is assumed as a temporal force and the geography shows links with the local traditions to establish technical operation strategies.

The landscape serves as evidence of the Colombian popular construction techniques, with materials and techniques applied by the craftsman who builds for his own habitat. A territory where guadua (Angustifolia Kunth) abounds and a neighbouring city with a ceramic tradition in brick and clay tiles give us clues to take the material as a symbolic input.

The project is located in the terrain, recognizing the solar traffic that alters the main facade and how this condition determines a dynamic mechanism that allows a variety of window openings.

The rear facade is delimited by a wall that folds in order to create storage space and interrupts the rhythm of this mass with 24 perforations that are punctually framed towards the edges.

Intimacy is altered by the south facade, entirely glazed to establish different escaping directions of space and  the extension of the platform, a floor that is diluted in the limits to plant the building in an exterior space.
