The original concept rises out of the major basis about color, and is that this cannot be taught or described. People are born with a special sense of color. Based on this idea, our intention was to create a facade out of the color model used in all printing systems, CMYK (Cyan , Magenta , Yellow and Key) for their best adaptation in manufacturing facilities. Parting from this initial palette we achieved a fresh effect with an organized structure that at some point breaks with the inclination angles of these colored stripes, changing the lineal effect of the material used in other facades of the building, compensating the lack of color and also maintaining the same visual effect of the vertical lines of the current material.
The range of colors used in this outer facade, was with the purpose to fully emphasize the building from its surroundings so it will not merge with it and isolating it completely from this industrial area. We found that using warm colors was crucial in achieving isolation from the environment.
