This substantial 14,190 m2 fitout for 900 staff offered an opportunity to holistically enhance Beca’s engineering and consultancy business, to present a fresh and professional image of their expanding organisation. Beca committed to a significant strategic transformation in changing to an open plan workplace with all staff in one building, and the fitout is designed in response to support a range of ways to work. Distinct zones are layered through the plan for individual and team-based working, transitioning into ‘studio’ spaces – open work areas that facilitate collaboration, creative thinking, and working.

This is the first of 3 buildings projected for the “CARIÑO” institutional program, driven by social manager of Santiago de Cali and the Ministry of Education. It is located in the district 21, east of the city, adjacent to the Cauca River dam, on a lot that for years had been used by the community as a park, but legally would be destined for the construction of an educational institution. The development of the project would generate a new form of living space whereas their new occupants would be children between 2 and 5 years.

THE PROJECT AIMS TO TRANSFORM THE HISTORIC BUILDING OF A PUMPING STATION INTO A PHOTOGRAPHIC STUDIO. THE BUILDING IS LOCATED IN A LITTLE FREQUENTED DISTRICT OF THE CITY. A CHARACTERISTIC FEATURE OF THE PROJECT IS A TERRACE ON THE GARDEN SIDE WHICH EXTENDS INTO THE EXTERNAL BLINDS. THE CLOSED BLINDS BECOME INVISIBLE AND BLEND INTO THE SURROUNDING, WHILE THE OPEN BLINDS REVEAL THE WORKSPACE LOCATED ON -1LEVEL. A CONFERENCE ROOM HAS BEEN DESIGNED IN THE OLD WATER TANK.

This three-apartment penthouse building on the corner of Calle Cicerón, located in Mexico City’s high-end residential hub of Polanco, resorts to a single structural strategy for all its achievements. Instead of investing in façade design, it bets on a structure of clear-cut spatial intention that maximizes window view while preserving privacy.

A complex site
The “Avenue de France” administrative building is sat on a site which imposes several constraints. It was built on a site bordering the CFF (national) railway lines, limited on its northern end by the Avenue de France and adjacent to a pre-existing building. The site’s topography also imposes varying conditions namely: the railway tracks to be found at the lowest point, the level of the access to the underground parking, the level of the Avenue de France over-passing the railway and the general level of the existing adjacent buildings. It is worth noting that before construction of the building the site had long been considered as ‘unsuitable’ for development.
