A steel cube supported by concrete walls is the image of a bakery company with an industrial process, located in a new area of corporative buildings.

A new industrial concept for a company dedicated to the production of  traditional and elaborated bread of massive consumption , incorporating top technology to all  panification processes.

Privileged location in a new  area of corporative buildings lead us to create an integrated design where volume was favored as an object.

As production and elaboration areas, frigorific chambers and warehouses are closed  spaces, with controlled and differentiated atmospheres, the building was projected with a strong volume and material contrast , as a building closed to exterior. Offices and laboratories are placed in a second level with glassy inner and outer facades  in the center of the building, incorporating a transparency concept towards all processing  areas (visual relationship). All inner areas have pre manufactured and self portable thermic panels allowing flexible changes, cleaning and thermic differentiation.  An elevated footbridge for visitors, hanging from the roof  with glass ornaments crosses all productions areas and can be used as evacuation via towards the rear area of the building. A big sculptural concrete wall supports the second level glassy façade , which rotates to east facing “Ciudad Empresarial” complex and Los Andes  cordillera.
