“A building stands in all its complexity of lines on the eye. Sometimes, given its size and proximity of the spectator who contemplates it is impossible to perceive its volume, forcefulness, and therefore perceive it as a symbol. Because we want buildings without coats, without haughtiness emblematic, not exorbitant budgets, buildings that speak of the people who make the company and that they relate well with others that are not part of it. Buildings, quietly, transcend, because charisma in the design found in those forms that survived their function. Hence, beyond the building’s skyline symbol, the building show, free avant-garde building is the building that blends with the company that hosts and the surrounding environment, with the brand it represents. It is the building that never dies, because it becomes an icon of popular ideas …”
“While not fully sustainable building, we performed an in-depth and intense search for materials that do not harm finally the environment. In addition, enterprising project with a clear minimalist. “”Simplify to win, how does the anointing”” are some of the ideas that when applied to conceptualize designs. The intention is to show emblematic buildings without haughtiness or exorbitant budgets, buildings that speak of the people who make the company and that they relate well to others who are not part of it. “”Buildings that, quietly, go beyond, because we understand that the charisma in the design is in those forms that survived their function. “”It is the building that never dies because it becomes an icon of popular ideas …
When DENORTE professionals took over the cladding of the building and all exterior, he was in an advanced state of construction, their enclosures consisted of precast concrete panels and the front glass curtain wall was defined by the technical direction; and clashed with a small budget for coating and exterior finishes … The most viable solution, after carrying out a visual survey from several points, was facing a sheet completely with minionda with horizontal waves to enhance the image cube of the building and RAL lacquered with a uniform specific to the initial set. This was achieved on one hand the direct solar load reduction on the building creating a small pocket of air waves through the plate and the other fully emphasized the building.
Once won the unified whole and see that one of the facades were exposed to extremely high traffic area city, it was decided to cancel the option completely all the patella chapters originally planned to convert it in the image of the company: This is used panels designed with a specific image from a waterproof board recycling. Once approved, the design drawing, it began with the partial covering Building. For placement were designed a series galvanized steel supports to separate the lattice of the metal and thus achieve a number of shadows to illuminate the whole. It areas rejected after visual studio, it was not appreciate in the distance, the savings in mind and final costs.
Thanks to the shape of the lattice, in some windows of the facades is achieved shadow zone up to 60% without reducing the view from the inside and the consequent energy savings involved. For the exterior, we designed an enclosure from round galvanized metal sections separated by the same width, so as not to impair vision external viewer. These are anchored on a concrete wall that takes the large slope of the plot. For the garden area, there was a small Irregular stamped concrete step in dark colors to not hinder the vision of set of front and to maintain the glass wall, like decorative artificial turf was used and recycled crushed white marble for its subsequent maintenance is minimal and no use of any water or detergents.”
