Inside the factory of soluble products PROSOL SA who built our firm in 1999 in Venta de Baños, Palencia, we incorporate a new building to house the Principal offices. Following the premises of the project that valued the main trading floor as a meeting point where converge all circulations of the factory, the building is designed in the southeast corner of the plot accentuating the image of the Company.
It is a small two floor office building in which new criteria of flexibility and natural lighting are experienced by introducing courtyards as new partition elements. Against the traditional solution of using aluminum partition we use this separating light walls in order to isolate the most private areas, while natural light reaches the lower plants in a building partially closed, turning this operation into the main idea of the project which has a very suggestive inner luminosity.
Two small service bands alternately occupy the sides of the plants, releasing the rest of the office area to dispatch different privacy degrees surfaces and keeping the inner space with a strong longitudinal transparency idea. The project aims to solve the relation with the preexisting factory introducing materials already used in the main production volume: basically steel and glass.
We used a metal structure with pillars on the long sides and precast concrete slabs on the floors. The exterior walls are aluminum-skinned polyurethane with plasterboard inside, conforming finally a quick dry technology and execution.Location: Palencia, Spain Architect: espegel-fisac arquitectos Project name: Edificio de oficinas para fábrica de productos solubles
