Sanchinarro Market

MARKET IN MADRID

I am a logo!

A market, like a shopping centre, will benefit greatly from offering an iconic image that citizens can easily identify, giving the centre its own personality. An iconographic building may become a much more powerful logo than any poster or sign. NUBE is a logo: it is a generator of commercial identity, it is a magnet for investors and consumers.

Easy!

The entire commercial area is located on the entrance floor! Impossible? NO, IT IS NOT. Taking advantage of the streets’ slopes bordering the plot, we propose to develop the «ground» floor on a continuous surface with a very slight constant slope, almost negligible. The length of the plot allows floors to fold on each other while the entire commercial programme is directly accessible at street level. There are no areas of greater or lesser privilege depending on accessibility. NUBE is easy.
