For the design of this building, it was essential to take into account the requirements of the textile industry, which works with special machinery and inks. For this reason, the priority was to ensure the ventilation and lighting of the different rooms, for which patios are used at all levels. At the same time, the factory has a washing area for inks that requires permanent ventilation, which is why a metallic lattice was projected as a closure, allowing the room to ventilate directly to the patio. Programmatically, the building is divided into three levels: the production ground floor, the first floor with the offices and material deposit, and a third floor that is foreseen for future productions. It was sought to give the building the imprint of a factory by means of different resources, such as the use of corten steel in the front facade (to which different drilling operations are introduced) and the metal roof.
