KAWNEER HEADQUARTERS FRANCE, Montpellier

PROJECT FOR THE NEW KAWNEER HEADQUARTERS IN FRANCE

The project consists of two different areas: the space for the warehouse and the offices building. Both areas belong to the same volume but attend to their different uses and functionalities separately. The constructive solution for the warehouse’s façade is a ventilated, triple skin façade made of cellular polycarbonate. This material allows for the natural light to penetrate inside the warehouse, offering the perfect thermal conditions for its use. The chosen chromatic game results in a changing esthetic, mimicking with the surroundings during the day, while becoming a colorful light box during the night. The offices are developed from a game of glass volumes that slide from the main volume, generating interior and exterior workspaces. The project also embraces the treatment of the exterior green spaces, the accesses and the exterior spaces for the warehouse logistics.
