From the architect. A neighborhood in constant changes where buildings are adapting their destination to commerce and service, this building shows a typology/language trough it's volumetric and weightlessness, and harmony with its re qualified urbanism environment.

The Mercado Design's project is born from de knowledge of the building following some concepts: a single building with slightness and permeability that provokes surprise, interest in that it can be revealed. It's more a provocation to the first look then the explicit revelation in that it can be presented. It is not intended to sell the " materialized" but talk about the motivations that leads persons to search for bigger values, with best quality for living.

We believe we have designed something that is not limited to palpable issues, but something that can suggest a greater perception.
