Framed by the green of the Cerrito hill, the building concept of the headquarters of Lineastudio Arquiteturas was designed respecting the original topography of the terrain and the nature of the surroundings, confused with the natural landscape.
With a strong concept of contemporary architecture and authenticity of materials, the materiality present in the project is translated by the choice of the apparent concrete, the wood and the naval plywood in its composition.
The Santa Ana new headquarters was developed on a circulation axis with integrated spaces. The main program comprises a waiting room, a breeding room and two meeting rooms. The path between the waiting room and the meeting room is made by the passage through the “heart”, room of creation, ending in a belvedere for the native forest.
The large openings guarantee the transparency and total interchange between the internal and external areas, such as the use of natural lighting and the privileged visuals. To guarantee environmental comfort for the spaces, it benefits from cross ventilation and controlled natural lighting with the use of blinds.
In landscaping, the preservation of existing vegetation and the interventions that sought to value the topography of the land and delimit the perimeter of the office stand out. In addition, on the ramp that leads to the garage was used pisograma, to obtain a pavement resistant to traffic of vehicles, but without giving up the permeability and the green effect.
Internal gardens reinforce the divisions of the uses, surprise during the course of the main circulation axis, increase the lighting and ventilation areas and bring the vegetation closer. The continuity of the main volume, cut through the gardens, is maintained by the concrete frame that delimits the frames.
