atelier industrial settles within existing warehouse in San Rafael

 

The atelier industrial, designed by Marcos Garbin, unfolds as a minimalist office space within an existing warehouse in San Rafael, Argentina. The office space is created along an existing wall, featuring a single desk strategically positioned facing the brick side with windows for improved ventilation. Meeting and reading tables are centrally placed, and the study space is defined by walls that do not extend to the ceiling, separating it from the studio area. The design prioritizes simplicity, economy, and ease of assembly, employing a closed system of laminated beams and columns with uniform size and proportion.

 

Distinctive features include a swing door that can be manually opened to alter the space’s direction and function, providing privacy during work hours by isolating it from industrial noise. The alveolar polycarbonate facade serves as a responsive surface, offering translucency while ensuring privacy. The industrial character of the surfaces is subtly softened by the diffuse conditions created by the polycarbonate panels.

intricate light configurations create a nuanced office space

 

The architectural adaptation is unobtrusive yet fundamental, emphasizing the space’s qualitative aspects. The system of thirteen columns and ten beams transforms the pavilion into a reflective element, interacting with its surroundings by transmitting and receiving light. This play of light contributes to the pavilion’s luminosity and creates a nuanced architectural environment. The design of atelier industrial embraces the context’s technical and intellectual materials, experimenting within established rules to achieve a balance of simplicity and intensity in the architectural space.
