Typology of intervention | Concept
 
It is an intervention inside or in the envelope of an existing structure; the intervention can be partial or overall depending of each case.
 
It is based on the removal or modification of its parts, and the addition of architectural elements with the purpose of defining new functions and attract new users fostering interactions. It is commonly used to revamp retail, commerce, entertainment areas in privately own public spaces (POPS) of free access.

In some cases it is essentially an interior renovation in an existing building. In some others it is an exterior renovation of its envelope making it accessible and interactive in different ways toward the exterior.

Either way, it aims to look purposely intervened and changed from its original design and appearance

Among its functions, often creates new places for collective leisure with a variety of spatial alternatives for public use, which are supplemented with commercial related programs such as restaurants, small shops, foods and beverages, art galleries, among others.
 
It produces an unconventional urban experience, where the boundaries between public and private are blurred increasing the public identity of the city through its inhabitants.
