The new construction is oriented to services that complete the present facilities of the Audi-Volkswagen company, mechanic workshop in ground floor and storage of cars in the upper levels.

The building, as much by the application of the city-planning regulations like by the program necessities demands, is developed in two heights and rescues the cover – flat and passable -, as another use plane.

A regular space of concise distribution supported in a strict, modular layout – without unnecessary structural shows -, and a continuous skin with a unitary treatment in the two facades forms the solution of the construction.
