We designed a building whose simplicity and transparency are the ideal response for the needs of the client and those using the facility. The design stems from the need to create a space that enhances the company’s core concepts of connection, cooperation, and teamwork. This is a project that must function as a small “city” within a specific social and urban context. Ciudad Toyota is a living organism that responds to a company’s evolution in the face of complex changes and adaptation to new needs over time.
It begins with a sequence of industrial sheds in which studio work, maintenance activities, and product storage can be developed. This first stage is covered by a façade that generates different degrees of transparency in terms of establishing a dialogue with the environment. It projects a primary axis that cuts through the field from start to finish, joining the different buildings and living spaces throughout as well as serving as the backbone of Ciudad Toyota.
