set on a plot measuring at 1000 x 1000 sqm, DX arquitectos and del sante arquitectura placed the pavilion-like structure as a strip spanning 30 meters long and visible to the road and passersby. the warehouses have been organized behind this raised structure in a north-south orientation, leaving enough distance for the loading and unloading of goods from the trucks. named ‘honey exporter’, the construction uses laminated pinewood as its main material. the diagonal X pillars span from the ground, raising the structure to liberate the ground floor for access and criss-crosses across the windows and main façade. topped with an overhanging roof, it protects the wooden structure. simultaneously the roof deters direct sunlight from entering into the interior office space which overlooks the surrounding landscape.
