located in lima’s center industrial area, and designed by local-based v.oid architecture, the AGP eGlass factory and offices negotiates a neutral façade with a pristine interior space.
this new facility is in charge of supplying the largest windscreens ever produced for a passenger car in the history of the automobile, having tesla motors as one of their main clients. over one hectare of industrial space and offices has been used to accommodate the installations.
the brief of the project stated that the design had to motivate the people who work there, to encourage the operators to be as clean as possible, and for them to be submerged in a stimulating space with a clear visibility towards the industrial line. the visitor enters the space thru an all-wrapped black carpet entry corridor that opens up into a vertical triple height cylindrical space with an LED-backlit glass. the reception desk, made of raw glass built like a flat brick wall, welcomes and sets the tone of an office design connected to its production line.
the office area works as a big open space with enclosed glass areas that serve as meeting rooms. the ceilings and carpets used, optimize the acoustics of the space. an inner glass façade reinforces the visual connection between the offices and the industrial line. the project adapted to the site which was previously used as a storage facility, keeping in mind the idea of saving as much as possible the existing steel roof structure with its exterior cover.
