Plata is a project that provides intelligent business platforms.
A platform that allows proper experimentation for Fa├žade material and engineering solution integrated with upper platforms for offices. The conceptual idea was built upon how to provide the most efficient and proper architecture to foster the two complementary programs. An L Shape metal engineered louvers breaks up to allow highly permeable relation at street level.
This transparency is broken up with white concrete bars to generate a specific barcode identifying the identity of the related showroom. Each bar holds a panel with brand name with edge light.
Another contrasted element is designed in respect to the metal engineered L Volume, which is the Glass Box. It fosters different offices at different exposures with the environment.
These business platforms are vertically connected by voids that provide natural light and ventilation, a green architectural element, which minimize energy usage.
