This project, it was necessary to interpret the vision of Infodema and ensure that it was reflected in the space. The solution must identify important variables to distribute space, use Infodema products and gather knowledge of both companies. At the same time that qualified its headquarters and showroom, a process of investigation with the most innovating product of this company was developed. Thus, the project emphasizes the value of materials, techniques and processes, to give an integral solution for architecture problems. The proposal is based on the development of a surface that crosses the walls and the ceiling, differentiates the spaces and solves the technical facilities, so that a single element dresses all the space. The layout is organized around the main spaces: showroom, meetings room and hall. The first two have a concavity that gives them more height, and the latter with less elevation to fill the pipeline. Offices are organized around the hall. They are divided by transparent panels that keep in view of the ceiling as articulator of the proposal. After section the surface according to the required spaces, plywood ribs were settled hanging of the ceiling. They are covered with Surflex plates, which are thin and flexible so they can adapt to the curved geometry of the ribs.
Location: Las Condes, Santiago de Chile Surface: 215 m2 Materials: Ribs in Plywood 15mm, ceiling and walls in Surflex, partitions in tempered glass 10mm, solid floor of coigue, stripwood.
