The main point of contact between the interior of the store and the outside environment is its sidewalk which has been transformed into a large continuous plane.

Connecting both volumes, there is a translucent attachment that allows the entrance of natural light, thus creating an inner atmosphere with the sensation of the passage of time by the variation of the light itself.
