The new “Fondo” Market project consists of a multi-purpose building that responds to the town´s needs and requirements, gathering several functions in a single building that would normally be scattered.
The interior integrates the differing levels of the surrounding streets, articulating the different building functions and spaces, creating a system of public spaces that serve as an internal thoroughfare.
The building is placed beside the old “Fondo” Market, and is designed as a large main base that contains the market and supermarket, with a lighter upper part covered by semi-transparent skin that contains the Nursery School school and the library.
According to architectural principles, the structure is divided into two main typologies: a base made of reinforced concrete and prefabricated slabs and an upper part built with metal and consisting of a steel trusses grid on top, from which hang the last three composite steel and concrete floors from struts.
