The proposed layout comprises 2 production warehouse and one administrative building. The site is zoned into 2; the outer Administrative zone open to general public and the inner production zone. A restricted area for production staff only.
The project is design with a sole purpose of exploiting natural lighting. With our project strategy, we were not only meant to achieve an appreciable energy saving, but we should also provide the working area with the most favorable, warm atmosphere for the development of working activities. The goal was to illuminate naturally, without dazzling, using the orientations and shadows;. The conception of the Administrative offices building could not miss this encounter with the light. The glass skin is transparent on the ground floor, being protected by the suspended volume of the first floor, which, although it is also made of glass, becomes intimate and heavy by the use of a curtain wall composed by U-glass and thermal glass. The air chamber between both layers helps to dissipate heat and control the interior temperature.
