The project’s ambition is to give a visual identity to this technological building in using a specific architectural language. The façade derives its inspiration from the aesthetic of the pixel, with these piercings informing the placement of windows, vents, and openings on the building’s exterior.
The skin’s reflective material allows the building to appear as a small jewel in an otherwise industrial landscape, in addition to shielding from view the various mechanical systems contained on the roof or in the interstitial space between the exterior and the interior spaces.
