NESTLE FACTORY in Sao Paulo, Brazil by METRO ARQUITETOS ASSOCIADOS

Article source: METRO ARQUITETOS ASSOCIADOS

Introduction

The main intention for the design of Nestle´s factory visiting areas was to create a landmark in the generic landscape of the highway that connects São Paulo and Rio de Janeiro, revealing the existence of a public and accessible space. This visibility is achieved by the installation of two steel framed glass towers, which are connected to foot bridges that roads and wraps the existing building, granting access to the elevated walkway inside the factory. In this manner, visitors and service traffic are kept apart from each other. The structural geometry and the materials used were designed to trigger a sensorial and perceptive experience and to contribute for a clearer comprehension of the history and production of chocolates throughout visitation.
