The “Paseo de la plaza” walled building type, and the new building called “metal strip” is light and made of metal sheets. This piece rises from the ground level between vegetated flower beds, containing 10 facades of commercial premises designed as windows of the old sidewalk bars. Its furniture in front of the windows is resolved through the same language. Under the same porche language we have defined areas of common use for the complex’s diners, as if it were a natural continuation of the construction system itself.
We proposed white flooring at the fronts of the venues as if they were their own sidewalks. Next, gray and then black generate a gradient towards a central organic figure that emulates a stream, unifying the green landscaped areas along the promenade. Its diagonal arrangement links the common areas on both sides of the market.
The large garden areas located around the tower perimeter have been intervened, allowing for use within them via a transitable and absorbent paving. There we placed new, cement-made organic figures to accompany the shapes of the garden areas filled with new native species.
On the first level we set up common picnic tables in front of the main theater room. This area is covered by two large tightened fabrics, under which a sort of garlands illuminates with a kermis-like code.
The first floor of the Manduca promenade was adapted with a restroom for the disabled, as well as a service elevator connecting the basements and first floors of half of the commercial premises.
