As part of an ongoing collaboration with The Coca-Cola Company, Rojkind Arquitectos together with AGENT worked on the design of Foro Ciel, the physical space which will house the content for the Transformadora Ciel programs. Foro Ciel emerges as the vivid example of a positive transformation as its main premise. Having an unused space as a starting point (flat roof and helipad) and transforming it into a productive co-working center, surrounded by green areas, the space not only achieves functionality but also revives a corner of the city.

The site, reinvented with recycled materials and a series of clean technologies, acquires a green roof whose vegetation does not require irrigation from the grid since a rain water collecting system was installed. Regarding the environmental impact, we took into account various aspects during design and construction to minimize environmental damage and even have a positive impact. For example, the aesthetic “industrial” project is intended to leave many elements (facilities, pipelines, etc.) So apparent to avoid using extra materials finishes.

The customized furniture, includes interchangeable modules that activate a flexible configuration interior where different groups are able to work in various topics and re-arrange the layout as their work flow requires to. The shapes within the space, as well the curved windows are reminiscent of Ciel’s “double droplep” logotype and a representation of the dynamic work space it holds.

- Natural and LED-based lighting
- Water-based paint for structural elements
- Locally produced furniture
- Green roof including an orchad with rain water collection system
- Use of recycled materials and re-utilization of existing structural elements
- Use of low impact materials that contribute to LEED certification
- Solar panels which contribute to most of the electrical requirements of the space
- Exposed installations to eliminate the need of unnecessary finishes
