From the architect: The first challenge was to readapt the existing restaurant and adjust it to the new program requirements. Great importance was given to the exterior façade, to the pedestrian and vehicular interaction, to the connectionsduring day and night, as well as the approaching distances towards the building.

The access is located at the corner of the building facing the checkout area. A double-height space, next to the avenue, is considered to be the main one. The following space, on the first floor, overlooks the central area while other seems to float internally, relating straightly to the outside.

The building responds in different ways to the surroundings. The main sign floats over the streetemphasizing the connection with the avenueand enclosing the double height of the lower level, while throughout the first floor,the balcony accentuates the length of the volume.

The technical aspect of the external cladding (a common element in gastronomic architecture) wasconsidered to be essential in the design phase. A modular system was created where all the attachmentsbetween the eighty unique pieceswere hidden within the joints. The overall system, composed of circular perforated metal sheets, gives some depth to the surface during the day, while allowing the backlight to shine at night. This lightning system intends to simulate the cars passing through the avenue giving the building a sense of belonging to the site.
