WHY IS THIS SHOP INTERESTING TO VIEW?

Alongside an existing cobblestone path, a simple white volume was “carved” so as to allow for a oblique crossing through its mass, recognizing existing pedestrian trails on site. A shaded passage, a bench and an enclosed usable area were thus “revealed” from the original mass. A “light box” was added, above the volume’s roof, to be seen from the North at night. Although the structure was designed at first without a specific functional use (it could be a coffee shop, a guardhouse or a small convenience store), it ended up being built as an agency for the Santander-Totta Bank with little modifications to the original layout. The strong red color of the bank’s visual code helped to emphasize the formal intentions of the project, revealing the “excavation” of the original volume. This combination, in turn, allowed for a very strong expression of the bank’s identity in this place. Both the Polytechnic and the Bank were pleased with this symbiosis and pushed for a rapid construction of this structure.
