CEL Industrial Building

Paterna, Valencia. 1999

Cables Especiales de Levante bought a 5,000 m² plot adjacent to its electrical material factory near Valencia to build a new, specialized warehouse to store and organize its products before being shipped. The building was designed as a 14m tall, 52m x 85m wide prismatic box, finished with horizontally laid aluminium cladding. The structure is formed by two structural bays spanning 26m each spaced at 5.1m. The result is a high, unosbstructed interior space naturally lit by means of rectangular skylights situated every 10.2m. Located in the first bay are the cargo area and a two story building containing the dressing room for the workers on the lower floor and a dining area on the top one.
