The #local market of #Ferreries #after falling

The #local market of #Ferreries #after falling into disuse for several years has been restored and extended to become a new Cultural Centre. Its physical and social surroundings #have changed and evolved over the years, while the building was abandoned and forgotten. #Now, there is a #temporal overlap -past, present and #future- #between #memory and the contemporary #daily #life of the neighbourhood.

The main #original nave of the market is preserved and its void character is #recovered. Natural light becomes a main element that emphasizes the dialogue between old and new.

Originally the market was giving the back to the Joan #Monclús #Square. The square was an opportunity to hold outdoor activities and events, so the main entrance and extension was placed between the square and the #old market. Today, the square gives access to the new Cultural Centre, which at the same time sets a background of the activities held there.

A #close #relation is #established #between the #market and its extension, through the #horizontal #lines of composition, opposing the tall new mute #facade and contrasting the #white, #soft and bright #interior of the nave to the new dark, grooved and textured facade.
