• March 18, 2010

Colombia-based architectural firm Entorno AID has designed a car service center - AutoSura Bogotá in Colombia.

One of the architectural proposals for the volume of the building is to maintain a direct visual relationship with the outside through a metal lattice that covers most of the façade, and integrates advertising volumes in the large loose truss.

The Service Center seeks to meet the needs of policyholders and clients in general, regarding basic procedures for preventive and corrective maintenance of the car.

The project is located on Avenida 19 # 139, Bogota, Colombia has its principal address facing the Avenida which makes an impact in the project’s volumetric development. The building is set in a high volume of triple and a double skin bioclimatic using concepts that can optimize the natural light, ventilation and thermal comfort.

One of the architectural proposals for the volume of the building is to maintain a direct visual relationship with the outside through a metal lattice that covers most of the façade, and integrates advertising volumes in the large loose truss.

On the first floor, the Client’s Reception Entry is located in a glass box that allows a visual connection with the Vehicle’s Technical Inspection area (-Dynamometer- Test Tracks). It is situated in a perimeter, like a parking area, outside the building with a direct and independent entrance and exit of vehicles.

The second floor is divided in the Employee Area and the Customer Zone which functions independently. The Customer Zone has a reception, a Waiting Room, and the offices for the claim of insurances, and a cafeteria for clients.

In the third floor there is the Technical Area of the building arranged in one volume.
