    Abstract:

    The site is located at the crossing of two roads, a roundabout with traffic on a newly created commercial area. The building is designed to accommodate a large supermarket and a series of smaller premises. The building extends its limits with a large curved facade that seems to go along with the passing traffic nearby. The fragmented volume is majorly crowned by a curved canopy that unifies its image. At dark, the building inside lightens up and the glass facade shows its inner activity. The whole building was made with prefabricated concrete structure except for the supermarket’s roof, where wide span laminated wooden beams cover the area.
