The needs program proposes the realization of an office building and industrial activities pavilions.

The office building raises the rental modules on its outer perimeter, creating inside a courtyard in the centre of the building to which pour meeting, circulations and services areas.

On the ground floor we found common uses, including an exhibition hall and a conference room.

The building stands out the maximum use of natural light (façades completely glazed), while using sheets of deployé as solar protection in all the sun exposed surfaces, endowing the building his characteristical image.

The industrial pavilions are conceived as abstract pieces in which the  lighting and ventilation hollows are integrated into the façade. They are solved with a prefabricated concrete structure and an exterior enclosure combined with a folded sheet of marine environment protected steel and prefabricated concrete panels.

The intervention is completed with the urbanization of building surroundings and parking areas, as well as a careful landscape treatment through the use of plant species.
