|PROPOSAL / COMPETITION
This proposal was an opportunity to create different outdoor social spaces along the different levels and a ground floor public plaza. The different spaces connecting the two volumes of the building were also designed aiming to promote a sense of community between its users. Moreover, because of its orientation and location within the city center, the facade allows abundant natural light and great views of the city. The different bridges also perform as a great permeability element on the ground floor which creates a more comfortable outdoor environment for the public and enhances the different commercial spaces located on that level.
This proposal was designed having the adjacent building GAIA as an important reference to maintain a similar architectural language. Therefore, it follows GAIA’s organic and elegant facade design. It consists of two large structures connected by several bridges and platforms along its height. It was designed this way because since we were going to be dealing with a big plot of land, we did not want the building to have a negative impact on that residential area because of its volume and dimension.
