Design concept references the spatial circumstances of the surrounding residential buildings and plazas in the design. The main feature of the construction project is a geometrically ingenious roof structure made of colorfully glazed stone tiles by Ceramica Cumella. The ceramic tiles, fired at high temperature with bright, transparent glazes reflect the shape and colors of the surroundings. Viewed from above the roof structure has the appearance of a Tetris-pattern flying carpet. The roof's clear color macro-mosaic takes its shapes and colors of the fruit and vegetables on sale there.
