The building is born out of the optimized construction system and without rhetoric. It is conceived as a clean and simple ship. Inside this envelope the offices and warehouses are placed with elementary construction of glass, polycarbonate and metal. The container escapes the constructive complexity, focusing on generating a clear and white atmosphere.
The building is the frame and support for the granite. The interior spaces are covered with different types of stone and finishes, being the façade the greatest formal load. The direct north-south orientation is key to its design. The blue platinum granite lattices overlays onto the container.
The volume opens directly to the north and closes to the east. The lattice to the west is vertical and rotated 45º maximizing the dimensions of the pieces. The effort is concentrated to the south. A granite basket has been built, a fabric of equal pieces. The rotation of this piece allows the setting of the fabric, the light is filtered and the incidence of the sun is avoided.
Space and construction at the service of the stone.
