Headquarters in Leioa
Open workspaces against hermetic technical rooms: a contrast of two programs for the same space forces a series of closed packages to be positioned in the center of the room, forming a large black box that moves away from natural light and splits the plant in two non-symmetrical programs halves. On one side, a corridor to laboratories and test areas; on the other, a single workspace and a glass box for private offices. Both areas communicate in the front area, which receives light from three sides and serves as a common space for all workers. The chosen materials accentuate the polarity defining the project: backlit perforated sheet metal for technical areas skins and glass screens for work areas.
