Ayesa was responsible for carrying out all the construction work. The fact that this project involved an historical building meant limitations in terms of changing the structure, as well as certain basic elements of it. Thus, the focus was on renovating and adapting the building, whilst maintaining its unique appearance.
The adaptation of the old Naves del Barranco building for its new use as a culinary market was designed so as to respect the original structure and its division into four halls. However, the building was designed to form one single space, which now houses 20 stalls and various outdoor seating areas. This project involved four main features: the glass facade, which was extended to include the side galleries, providing them with an identical appearance, this allowing the indoor space to be increased; the full renovation and adaptation of the complex for its new use; the replacement of the current paving with a high-quality stone paving, which resembles wooden decking, ensuring durability and suitability for its new use; and a direct connection with the market’s support basement, under the renovated Plaza del Husillo square.
The total floor area is 2,850 m2.
