Our first reflection was the way in which the building had to co-exist with the surrounding landscape, how to understand that, due to its fisical position, and the considerable size, immediately was going to transform into the main image of the city visitors and inhabitants.
Another important requirement, was to have in mind posible extensions of the building program, future changes allowed by the current layout. To manage this situation, we proposed an open system, that allowed alternative layouts, or even the building growth. The main block is placed on a corner of the site, allowing growth towards other areas of production. The strategy was to frame the area for first and future constructions with two green “cage” walls, full of local vegetation, one facing the road, the other facing the lake, clearly emphasizing these natural frontiers.
