The design scheme consists of defining clearly the areas of production and the ones for support and management. 

The whole project stand on a podium that has several shared spaces for the workers and allows the direct connection between the buildings thanks to bridges and ramps.

The facades are designed with metallic profiles that give a shading effect using different distances between them and defining so the production volumes. 

The facades without the metallic profiles use the concept of the “light box” and they are made with U-Glass; in these case they correspond to the offices and managing areas.

Under every “light cube”, the architects subtract a volume from the podium to make entrances. 

The total area of the project is around 60,000 square meters and is going to be a new landmark for the city and a icon for the company brand.
