The starting point was a ghost building, and our task was to adapt its abandoned structure. We limited ourselves to “wrapping it up” and inscribing the functional layout into its structural grid. The horizontal body was accentuated with aluminium profiles around it and external canopies along the shopfronts. It provided a link between the façades and framed the advertising signs. The only extravagance was the illumination of the façade with chequered fluorescent lamps, signalling the building’s commercial function after dark.
