COFICAB---EXTERIOR-II-CLEAN

WHAT WILL THE FACTORY OF THE FUTURE LOOK LIKE?

The Coficab factory will resonate the key answers, core values and innovative solutions that reflect new ways of production, sustainability and a strong positioning in the globalized world, through a coherent Identity and a positive communication. This can only be achieved with a forward-thinking attitude that relates the brand image, the architectural body and the constant improvement and adaptation of the innovation processes.

HOW CAN ARCHITECTURE CONTRIBUTE?

Architecture is a reflection of the ambition and future positioning of the brand. The industrial space will be the physical body that resonates the core ambition of Coficab, therefore enabling the creation of value, efficiency, designing the brand face for the future. The project is based on pragmatic architectural and engineering solutions, concerned with the sustainability and feasibility of the system. From the exterior to the interior, the factory will be a resource-efficient, pragmatic building. The factory for the future will be hyper-efficient and sustainable, increasingly modularized with interchangeable lines that can be easily reconfigured for multiple production batches and adaptable for the future production needs. Architecture should cooperate by creating a space that allows innovation and adaptation, with clean, opened spaces, fully natural illuminated, allowing workers, developers, product designers and production technicians to work in open, airy environments, warped in a sustainable “skin” that identifies Coficab and its business.

ARCHITECTURE AS FORM OF IDENTITY

The skin that wraps the building aims for recognition and differentiation, allowing Coficab to distinguish itself in the market and have an upper-hand against its competitors.  The facade folding serves multiple needs and variables: it follows structural principles, it allows natural light and ventilation in one side, and it provides support for the solar panels in the other, since its design is the outcome of the angle and optimal solar orientation. With a copper finish, the outcome is a geometric, rigorous, dynamic shape that defines the rigour and excellence of Coficab production.
