The new fresh products market is a Mediterranean building: the sales area is a large open space with the light as a protagonist, a controlled light filtered through a wooden slats system of the facades and inner skin panels and slats of wood shavings. A continued zinc skin unifies roof and facades and it folds generating different highs that allow light entry and the all building ventilation. This skin folds itself creating porches to the main entrances. Fragmented cover dialogs in height with environment’s buildings and hide its big scale. The different highs respond to specific programme necessities housed inside: the big sales space, opened trough prefabricated metallic truss arches, has the whole high and lineal windows on cover folds. Logistic zone is situated on the west side and it has two floors with lower high, as same as the east strip where activities which worked independently from the market are situated, and therefore they can be a sector: restaurant, bar, polyvalent rooms and spaces to municipal associations.
