An existing industrial warehouse in the outskirts of Corona, CA is converted into a high-tech manufacturing facility and office for the firm Adura LED. The program includes offices, testing labs, showroom/meeting rooms, a manufacturing hall and a distribution warehouse. While the nature of the program and business is primarily functional and pragmatic, with all emphasis on the streamlined processes of manufacturing, testing and distributing, our team was charged to challenge the notion of a typical manufacturing facility and insert a sense of openness and identity. With a small budget and a tight timeline domaen sought to maximize the company’s abilities through a series of volumetric, graphic and lighting interventions.
As part of a series of projects that engage volumetric mass and datum in various forms, the PRI interior contemplates mainly the ceiling as a rigid mass that compliments a simple floorplan. The plan-section contrast allows maximum flexibility in programming and defines a volumetric narrative that is non-intrusive to the spatial needs of the client. The dual program of an office space and a manufacturing hall is visually linked through glazed walls and a continuous articulated ceiling with a rhythmic pattern of hung lighting fixtures that are part of the product series of Adura LED. The ceiling mass changes its vertical datum strategically to create zones of different occupation throughout the project, to articulate light-wells, and to serve as a vertical enclosure of the centralized showroom meeting area.

This allows for the central positioned space to serve as a hub for the entire building and remain visually open. Materially minimal, the rigid mass and the lighting datum overhead engage the program playfully, in large scale in the manufacturing area and in detail by forming a volumetric entrance desk and a presentation wall in the conference room. The business identity is visually articulated through colored glazing and linear graphics that serve either as way-finding or at times assume textural qualities.
