Ratchasima Green Factory
Ratchasima Green Factory is a factory producing starch powder in a suburban area. The production is a linear process from raw material delivery to starch powder storage in the warehouse. The building's plan, volumetric space, and form follow the location and the space needed for all machine operations in the production process and its management. The office has connection corridors into the production area on many levels.
The building is a reinforced concrete and steel structure; exterior materials are metal sheets, aluminum composite panels, and low-E glass with powder-coated aluminum frames; interior materials are homogeneous ceramic tiles, vinyl tiles, epoxy-painted cement, and painted plaster.
Its organic forms and textures give the building masses a soft character set in the vast landscape of this suburban area. The rectangular glass opening masses perch into the organic building mass to provide natural light and natural ventilation for the production area, packaging area, and storage area.
