Our client needed a new factory, laboratories, depositing and offices for its prosthetics products. The area was undeveloped at the time, save for two office towers and a small local guvernamental office on a nearby plot.
The relatively small plot and green space requirements on the ground forced the solution to stack up and create a more vertical layout.
The building itself was organized into 3 horizontal layers, the top and bottom one having a double facade with the exterior layer being metallic net. This way the whole building has a more organized outlook, hides the less interesting storage and factory/laboratory facade areas and lets light in where is needed. The middle part has its normal glass facade to create contrast in both shape and overall texture as it is also offset horizontally creating two huge terraces for the offices and meeting floors.
The result was a fast, simple, effective and pleasant looking solution.
