The proposal combines a timber and polycarbonate cladding within a traditional commercial form. The premises is split into two distinct zones. The larger factory space is housed within the rodeca clad structure. A central street corridor creates a place of meeting; a mediatory zone between the factory and offices. This area is clad in a vertical natural timber where double height spaces are expressed within the external form. A picture window opening with CITU branding creates a bold entrance to the facility.
