The project start point is to break the traditional pattern of a "Strip Mall". It opens creating a commercial boulevard as a large open space where all locals will have the same conditions.
On the second floor the building is broken in two of its boundaries to create an exhibition space of the visible marks from the highway and an auditorium for events to the eastern side.
For the facade we plan to use a metal grating used in the traditional local garage shops. This enclosure allows the interior spaces to have great versatility, as it lets the sun and natural ventilation comes in and it also allows the building be in constantly change.
