year of construction: 2004
aim of the project was to conceive a new type of retail unit
as a start in the chain centered on sales and distribution of
fresh and cured meat and poultry. The single-floor structure
comprises meat retail and preparation units as well as a separate
general retail space. Located on a narrow irregular site, the
wedged form has a steel construction covered with metal panels.
The streamlined golden sheath encloses the customer area, facing
the street, with entrance incised in the corner. Service areas
and access are oriented to the back, covered in raw, dark red
sheath that envelops the back wall and the roof.
