Cerebos Factory and Offices, Coega

Cerebos's new factory and offices are located in the Coega Industrial Development zone. The scale of the huge processing and storage warehouse is mediated by the introduction of articulated entrances and the bold application of dark blue metal sheeting in the otherwise white roofscape. The use of this colour reinforces the branding of Cerebos and is also introduced in the roofs of the office block and change rooms. The building boasts very high technical requirements and the processing plant is accommodated on various floors. Pergolas marking walkways and entrances establish a more human scale for workers and visitors alike.
