Once the decision of creating a covered plaza was assumed as the driving idea of the project, the efforts were centred on the design of the roof. This roof/first floor contains the supermarket, the market offices and a space with a built-in kitchen to accommodate lectures and cooking courses. Four large skylights cross this level and provide natural light to the market, which occupies the ground floor.
