    We faced ourselves with a complex program that includes reorganization of the Plaza de Santa Barbara and its surroundings, a new Market building, a temporary market which was used while the new building had been constructed, gardens, a new school and the pedestrian communication through it all.

    The new building has two “arms” of different heights in which are the shopping center and dwellings. Those two “embrace” a volume of lower height in which a market, sports center and municipal pool coexist, all lined up according to the N-S oriented skylights above them which cast light on them. The entrance to the market space is next to the square, in front of the old Barceló cinemas designed by architect Luis Gutiérrez Soto. The market occupies the entire ground floor, extending over the pedestrian street of the Beneficencia as an open-air market.
