casaPública designed the management and operating facilities of German company Krauss Maffei, located in the industrial complex Benito Juárez in Santiado de Querétaro, Mexico.
Here is the project description:
The office is build inside an industrial building with a structure that couldn’t be touched. A new freestanding two level structure, with the possibility of being dis- mantled, is erected in the interior of the facility, allowing a maximum amount of free space for exhibition and heavy equipment manoeuvring of up to 50 tons.
It’s façade and form, as well as the selection of materials, are the strict result of function and the required program, just as the simplifi- cation of circulations, clearly showing the visitors the way to take. In addition, the facility has a call centre, two showrooms, training area, kitchen – eating room, a heavy equipment warehouse, a meeting room, of- fices for 25 people and service areas.
The corrugated aluminium panels used for the façade gives privacy and se- curity to the personnel from any possible accidents. The glass transpar- ency separating the office area from the showroom allows permanent visual contact between management and technical tasks.
