The assignment arises from a contest to build the dependencies of a construction company, with a diverse program of Warehouse, Workshop, Offices and Cafeteria. The proposal is based on taking the diversity of materials, the recognizable structures and the basic shapes, as architectonic elements that are present in the works of the company.

The lay-out is based on four separate buildings settled upon washed concrete socles. They are connected by circulation decks raised over a quarry stone surface that acts as an open drainage, absorbing the winter water outpour.

The Warehouse, which is characterized by the wavy plate and by its steel structure, holds an office that raises out over the quarry stones. The Workshop stands out for the separated plank revetment and opens completely to the west keeping equipment towards the edges. The Offices were constructed of pure concrete with steel lattices and combines private zones with open workspaces in the interior. The Cafeteria appears as a glass pavillion that extends towards a deck covered through the same steel structure.
