Designed in 2015 and erected within the following year in the central Mexican city of San Luis Potosí, Quin is an industrial project for a German automobile supplier producing wood-made car interiors for the luxury section.
The project is located within an industrial park, comprising a program of an industrial plant, an administrative building and car parking composed in a well-organized masterplan, which takes into consideration the company’s future growth. A green belt surrounds the several buildings, serving as a buffer zone between the buildings and its urban environment and contributes to the human scale the project embodies.
The area between the administration building and the industrial plant turns into the center point of the project. Together with a covering saw-tooth roof, providing a contemporary and identifiable signature of the industrial purpose of the project, it creates an outdoor foyer connecting the two main areas; it is furnished with attractive stairways and benches where employees can socialize and enjoy the outdoors.
The general architectural approach is sober, contemporary and monumental. All building shapes and facades have a clean and solid appearance. The industrial plant´s facade is composed of a bright metal façade, while the administrative building´s façade contrasts with dark ceramic tiles. In line with the company’s corporate image, the interior is simple and clean with as much open spaces as possible, relying on polished concrete floors and custom wood furnishings in all public areas.
