Balancing timeless design and unique branding, local know-how and prefabricated mechanical precision, this compact training facility is designed to be replicated in other locations as required while enhancing brand identity. Beating with the heart of Airbus, the project encompasses the ethos of “innovation in everything you do”.
The design is based on the interweaving of vertically oriented glass and metal panel systems to illustrate the interaction between machines and people, working towards a common goal. The vertical pattern is intended to counteract the horizontal massing of the building and its inversion from predominantly metal to glass, connects the program’s elements in a seamless way.
Constructed with a concrete frame and metal skin, the building combines locally sourced materials with prefabricated panels, balancing cost and speed of construction. Panelised construction of the façade allows for greater quality control and a smaller number of total façade units.
