Adjustments to support the store program
After performing studies, we realized that it would be advantageous to not include the mezzanine. In contrast, we adapted the shop necessities’ program, reduced the staff area to the minimum necessary and chose to prioritize expanding as much as possible the area where the products are exposed.
To deal with the reduced room’s height due to the MEP systems, the HVAC project was planned since the beginning so that there were no ducts going through the ceiling. We designed the project so that these crossings occur in the edges, close to the walls, creating fake shafts above the exposing furniture and placing the ventilation frames on the walls.
