To house the ULMA Group headquarters and the UPTC Technology Centre we sought to design a building with its own identity and presence.
One of the ideas was the horizontality of the building, as a metaphor of the cooperative formula, where the political basis between partners is equality: one person, one vote.
In this particular case, the customization comes from the horizontal fretwork texture sought by the project designers.
The facilities have an area of 6,500 m2 (2,500 m2 of laboratory), where the Technology Centre for Packaging Innovation (ULMA PTC) operates, the division engaged in R&D.
Key subjects: Matching the fretwork and colour.
The continuity of the panels throughout the façade was achieved by designing the matching of the fretwork so that it matched the height of the upper panel where the panels met, having performed the cutting. The details of the installation were essential.
Colour. We wanted the elegance of black but not as a single colour but with the addition of grey shades in the form of droplets of various sizes.
