Designed by NUA arquitectures in Benissanet, Spain, The project to expand and renovate the Gon-Gar Workshop involves the reorganization of an organically growing industrial cluster consisting of two industrial buildings and the owners’ home. The relocation of the offices in the centre of the cluster and the construction of the new workshop has made it possible to multiply the internal connectivity of the complex and improve the quality of working life of its workers, increasing the surface area by 938 sqn, creating a total of 2,610 sqm.

Despite being two very different pieces, each with its own character, one of the keys of the project has been the search for continuity, dialogue and consistency between the two constructions and their relationship with the pre-existing elements and the urban landscape. The project gives form to the new urban front of the cluster with the definition of a new corner façade perimeter facing south and east that responds to the needs and characteristics of its interior space.
