Urban Design FRAN SILVESTRE ARQUITECTOS VALENCIA_SOSTRE_001

Inspired in low-weight pergolas and porticated structures traditionally used in some cultures – including Mediterranean – as transition spaces between outside and inside; this project reinterprets them to create an urban element which is specially thought to enjoy exterior space.

FRAN SILVESTRE ARQUITECTOS VALENCIA_SOSTRE_004This piece is designed to serve a restaurant, enlarging it and transforming life in the street beside it. While not in use, it’s geometry does not interfere with pedestrian transit, but it does remain open for improvisation of new uses for the project: a meeting point, a playground, a shade to stand under… The setting of the pillars induces a dynamic interpretation of the piece, which may be seen as a cantilevered or a doubly leaned structure, depending on different points of view.

It’s inside contains lighting, sound and conditioning facilities as well as retractile shading elements to enhance its intimacy.
