Situation plan

Around the southern, eastern and northern facade of the building a long cantilevered projecting roof is designed to point out the customer's entrance and to offer protection against rain for cargo vehicles. Projecting roof is dividing the building optically into two parts: lower part made of gray vertical facade panels with vertical widows and upper part with horizontal yellow facade panels and horizontal windows. In this way building is showing the dual function to outwards- difference between logistic and technical spaces in lower floor and offices, bathrooms and other spaces for relaxing and personal hygiene of the employed people upstairs.
