Lozy’s Pharmaceuticals factory

GVG Estudio (Daniel Galar, Josecho Vélaz y Javier Gil) + Vaillo-Irigaray (Antonio Vaillo y Juan L. Irigaray)

Description Technical file

The obvious fragility of the landscape of Baztán valley in Navarre was dealt with very skilfully in this project, taking into account the final dimension of the planned units.
New plant for the manufacture of oropharyngeal lozenges belonging to a pharmaceutical company. Situated in an idyllic landscape, the Baztán valley in northern Navarre, it generated some concern among the area’s neighbours given the potential impact of such a large industrial unit.
As a consequence of these conditioning factors, a smaller building than the one initially planned by the owners was ultimately designed, with a better interior layout to improve workflows, reflecting elements that identify the valley’s architecture such as sloping roofs and establishing a sequence of planes that mirror those of the surrounding hills.
Despite its dimensions, the result is a project that not only integrates into its setting but also interacts and dialogues with it. In the end, the valley’s population was pleasantly surprised.
The building functions optimally and provides a relevant corporate image, an aspect that is often ignored owing to the usual confusion about issues such as the possible poorer functioning or higher cost of a construction of such characteristics compared to the typical “units” found on industrial estates. Better functioning, image and integration into the setting with identical financial investment.
