This is the main entrance, facing out to the open street.
I wanted to go for a light-shaded slate material along the exterior walls to compliment the glass. Each floor is supposed to have a medium brown wood textured floor to compliment the light-shaded brown interior walls. Everything else would be a metal to contrast from the other rough textured materials. As for the vendors inside, I wanted them to have easy access to their set up areas, so the first floor became their floor. But they have to share space with the market’s café and coffee shops. I wanted to have the third and fourth floors join together in a way where there was more open space to enjoy the luxurious art galleries. And these floors are for people to relax or have gatherings for any meeting they may need.
A view of the back of the building, an open walkway leads towards the entrance.
A quick look inside the building. Most of the rooms will be mirrored on the East elevation.
