LBG'S NEW OFFICE BUILDING INCORPORATES THE EXISTING OFFICE ON THE GROUND FLOOR AND EXPANDS THE SURFACE WITH A CANTILEVERED SLIDING VOLUME.
The modernization of the company, which produces flour for the pharmaceutical and food factory from the seeds of the carob tree (Ceratonia siliqua), a typical cultivation of the local land, involves the reorganization of the entire production cycle with the introduction of new technologies and machinery.
The start-up program is an opportunity for a total redesign of the volumes and the interior spaces, and it is able to reestablish a business image of efficiency and productivity.
The production complex is covered with a skin of insulated aluminum panels which emphasizes the linearity of the volumes, interrupted only by the 25m silos height.
The office block is incorporated into a new glass volume , 46 meters long , over which is placed a second volume of 30m in a staggered position respect to the main entrance lug wrench.
This gives lightness to the ground floor volume, whose glass curtain wall is defined by the presence of two string-courses.
The main entrance to the office is marked by a canopy made of a thin cantilever plate.
The interior is dominated by light and glossy surfaces. The reception, made by a long counter in opal plexiglass and a behind wall made by frosted glass, leads to the offices on the ground floor.
A staircase, made by glass and steel, leads to the first level where there are placed a boardroom, a meeting room and a testing and quality control laboratory. The laboratory is placed in the northwest corner of the overhanging volume and present a large window through which is possible to see the entire production area.
