In an industrial park, this building is surrounded by giant warehouses and logistical monsters. In this context a building that houses three smaller companies was designed to represent at once the small scale of the individual companies and the large scale of the context. Within the overall composition, the smaller companies each have an individual expression through the color and materialization of their office spaces. Together they form a gesture appropriately scaled to face the big neighbors.
