Located west of Mexico City within the corporate and financial district boundaries, -ON- Headquarters is the base of operations of a company providing services to the oil and gas industry. After accessing the headquarters through the lobby and its oil pool, the Board Room functions as the project´s epicentre and generates in its surroundings a concourse where most of the company´s activities and interactions take place. This concourse is the crossing and meeting point for directors, associates, assistants, interns, and guests.
The nature of the company´s business is intended to be reflected in the materials chosen to allocate architectural brief. Being TIME the most important component in the creation of the industry´s raw material (oil), textures and surfaces expressing time and its traces where specifically chosen to contain the required spaces in the programme.
