Text description provided by the architects. The preexisting main space was a long and quite narow room, divided by two structural archs that sustain the building. Those two archs, suggested us a tunnel that could link the whole space.

Inspired on a Olafur Eliasson  installation ,the result was a golden wired tunnel that gives the impression it is floating.
