A simple line architecture giving answers for two autonomous processes;, car predelivery and preparation and car spare parts distribution,  incorporating latest technologies and bioclimate to the buildings.

The terrain (16 há) is a big esplanade for  car parking, consisting of a big park as the central axis , with green and service areas forming differentiated entrances leading to the personnel service building and preceded by a water surface  with a totem bearing the company logo. It is a simple architecture of closed big volumes, stainless steel color cut by horizontal window stripes looking like mobile lighting lines ,where   red corporate color is determinant in the whole  entirety both, day and night. Entrances have  also sun  and rain protection marquees.

Contrast is given by the main two storage building , a  stone body closed at the base and transparent glassy at the second level. It is supported by a great plain  roof with specific dimensions to control sun radiation , with an atrium in the east side, space with a porch made of double height columns and louvers in the upper part,  which is the social recreation area and entrance to the dinning room through two staircases solutions raising in the space. In the west side, a corridor with a protection corbelled cover made of steel and glass strains the circulation space and toilet entrance located in the first floor.

Bioclimate for  inner spaces is naturally conditioned air to improve life quality during day’s work. The system is highly expressed in the architecture of the building by means of brilliant aluminum  pipes of different  heights emerging from the ground. Rational  use of technical and energetic resources are focused on saving, life quality and environmental protection.

Ecological Features

Buildings incorporate geothermic technologies in all areas. Bioclimate for all spaces conditioning, using  earth as thermal  interchanger during in winter and summer. By introducing naturally conditioned air and generating steady interchanges per hour, constant temperatures between 18° and 24° can be achieved.

Sun radiation control in facades , use of natural  zenithal lighting without using daily artificial lighting result in energy saving. A responsible architecture giving solution to the severe energetic crisis of the country.
