墨西哥 Falcon 公司總部

The company, Corporativo Falcón, dedicated to instruments and medical equipment, required a new headquarters building in Mexico City. The premise, besides the need of greater area and a space designed to make efficient its processes, was to offer the building the capacity to cause a radical change of image of the business, in which the center of sales would become a precinct of work and the ideal space to receive clients and to be represented like a business of high technology.
從事儀器與醫療設備買賣的 Falcón 公司 (Corporativo Falcón) 要在墨西哥市興建新的總部大樓。該公司不僅要有更為寬敞的空間,並且與增進營運效率,也要讓設計的總部大幅改變公司形象。總部大樓以銷售中心為工作區域,該處是接待客戶的理想場所,能夠讓公司展現出高科技產業的氣魄。

A property of 2353m² in a very undisturbed street was acquired, very near the San Angel district, in which three groups of constructions existed, two on the perimeter and the biggest floating in the middle of the garden. In this manner the different corporate areas were divided, concentrating the area of sales in the central building, and carrying out the main intervention in this one. 
場址旁邊為幽靜的街道,佔地 2353 平方公尺,鄰近 San Angel 區。建築工程共有三項,兩項於週邊施工,另一項最龐大的工程則在花園中央以浮架方式進行。此種規劃可分隔出公司的各種區域,讓銷售區集中於建築中央,成為推展業務的主要場所。

Begining from the quality of the main construction of having a structure of big clear gaps, the interior distribution was liberated and the project was conceptualized as a crystal box floating in the garden. Concentrating on the relationship between the interior space and the outside, the crystal skin was floated before the solid perimeter to create a filter among this polarity of spaces. Subsequently, the relation among these was carefully edited seeking the micro worlds that represent the fractions, or fragments, the branches, the stones, or only a cloud crossing the sky.

The traslucid material, a series of straws encapsulated between two crystals, creates a virtual sequence of exterior spaces, and colors the interior with orange light that contrasts with the unit painted in tones of gray and creates veils of color and reflections that transform or disappear in relation to the position in which it is observed. The perforations are a response to the search of editing the views losing the gravity that exists in the traditional windows, to observe the outside mysteriously cutted and illuminated, apparently accidental that is capable of challenging the gravity, as looking through the branches of a tree. In this manner both skins are perforated as in a system of pixeles that are only touched by its edges, and that are bound as being unfolded, using this metaphor as a relationship of the ideal link among the business and their clients.
