Química Delta Offices

This offices building is located inside a chemical distribution center. The building is placed over a site next to an existing pond. Without the possibility to modify or replace the volumetric dimensions of the existing building, it responds to its own needs and the extreme temperature of the site.

The building is formed by four elements: a crystal box that floats over the pond creating an element between what exists and what is built. This crystal box is embedded in a 40cm simulated concrete plaque that defines the north façade. In the back of the building there is a solid concrete element that houses the services area. The other facades are formed by a natural crystal skin which is protected by two elements: the first one consists of a series of concrete blades that protect from heat and excessive lighting and the second one is formed by a series of aluminum tubes that work as a secondary mullion, saving 50% on installed air conditioning.

The interior revolves around a central patio covered by a translucent roof that creates life inside the building with help from the hallways and circulation areas that circle around this patio. The size of the offices is a result of a structural module that measures 4.5m x 4.5m creating 24.5m x 4.5m corridors that are ideal for work spaces and management cubicles.

El proyecto se desarrolla dentro de una planta distribuidora de químicos. El edificio se desplanta sobre un terreno junto a un estanque de aguas de emergencia existente. Sin la posibilidad de modificar o sustituir la volumetría del edificio, este responde a sus propias necesidades y a las temperaturas extremas del lugar.

El edificio se conforma por cuatro elementos: una caja de cristal flotada por encima del estanque creando un elemento de entre lo existente y lo construido. Esta caja de cristal se encuentra empotrada en una placa de 40 cm de concreto aparente que es lo que define la fachada norte. En la parte posterior se encuentra un elemento sólido de concreto que aloja los servicios.

Las fachadas restantes están formadas por una piel de cristal natural y esta se encuentra protegida por dos elementos: el primero consiste en una serie de paletas de concreto que protegen del calor e iluminación excesiva y el segundo está compuesto por una serie de tubulares de aluminio que sirven de parteluz secundario, dando así un ahorro del 50% en el aire acondicionado instalado.

El interior gira en torno a un patio central cubierto por una techumbre traslúcida que crea vida interior, ya que las circulaciones y los pasillos perimetrales viven hacia el patio. El tamaño de las oficinas es resultado del módulo estructural de 4.5m x 4.5m creando crujías largas de 24.5m x 4.5m ideales para barras de trabajo y cubículos de gerencia.
