This printing press is situated in an industrial park, bordered by a ring road and railway tracks. The ground plan is a deliberately simple square shape, which facilitates the operation of the production line. Materials for the facade were chosen to emphasise the building’s use and to reflect its location at a busy crossroads.
The south and east exterior walls are made of printed aluminium panels and transparent glass shutters, alternated in vertical sections across the full height of the building. These slanted ‘fins’ allow glimpses of the interior and can filter or flood the interiors with light, according to the needs of the workers inside.
