Text description provided by the architects. At the hottest spot in the most important alley of decoration in the city: alameda Gabriel Monteiro da Silva there was the only empty plot left. The client rented it and commissioned the architect to come up with a very low budget design, something that could be assembled quickly, respecting the existing trees.
The idea was to use discarded containers, to reuse a ready-made object, a leftover of the actual intense commodities exchange. The project was organized inside two tunnels of containers, taking advantage of the linearity of its inside spaces, and a double height hangar attached to it, a contrasting cubic volume. Huge polycarbonate sliding doors connect the store with the city and an inner garden.
