Factory Cultural, Creative Industries Incubator

Factory Cultural, Creative Industries Incubator

Located in Matadero Madrid, Factoria is a reversible adaptation, fully respecting this listed industrial heritage site, while housing a creative industries incubator. With sustainable wood and polycarbonate, we built a vacuum-packed, 105-eur/m2 space, adaptable to the multitude of situations the client asked for. Three volumes near the entrance organize the space, folding and compressing the circulations around it. This creates a gradient, from compact to expansive, from busy to silent, that helps achieve variety in the workspace. To lodge the needed 120 workspaces in a 340 sq. m. floor area, we used the cheapest pine lumber from certified local forests, all in the same standard size, which simplified the supply and construction of the structure; and multi-wall polycarbonate, lightweight, in large sheets, which allowed for the walls to be finished in one day. The lamps were made from the waste wood of the main structure, to which LED strips were attached and supported without the need to drill the existing columns.
