Concerning the height of the building and because it has 9 meters high, we decided to split his facade in 3 parts (2,5m; 2,5m; 4m) This also served to establish some rules regarding the design of windows; doors; etc.

Program

In terms of the program and taking in account the particularity of the functionality of the company, atelier Nu.ma noticed that this should be built in two stores. In the same logic, the program should be split in 3 different areas: exhibition; offices; warehouse

The building is organised: Ground floor, the public access with the exhibition area and the warehouse (controlled) were the exhibition is located near the principal road (EN.333) and the warehouse in the back of the terrain (with a secondary entrance).

Materiality Regarding the materiality of the building, we simplify all the construtura system. All the building is in corrugated sheet, and in the exhibition area we assumed a transparency of the building bringing the connection of the building it self with the public.
