The OSF Building

Artist's view of the ALMA OSF. All buildings are designed with a steel superstructure. Facades and roofs are made of insulated metal panels. Interior finishes for offices, laboratories and all common areas are designed to allow a comfortable working environment in this harsh location. All office and work areas have natural daylight and a splendid view of the Salar de Atacama. The buildings are covered with a 'second roof' made of louvers and designed to give maximum shade to the buildings. As such, less energy is used for the building's mechanical ventilation and air conditioning.
