The base of the project is a multi-functional platform that provides simple and colorful volumes that can be used for playing and resting for kids and adults alike.

The project is inspired by the physical phenomenon of the spectrum of colors derived from a light ray when intercepting a crystal, in which the light ray gets split into a range of different colors.

A colorful and rather sculptural installation designed to beautify the main indoor social spots of the commercial space.

From the skylights of both atriums, a group of colorful light rays represented by colorful nylon strings invade the voids, creating rainbows of colors that cross the 25 meters of void from top to bottom until reaching the floor, where they create colorful plazas.

The colorful plazas at the bottom consist on a group of circular platforms of activity, shaped by the light rays, intersecting each other to compose a unitary space under the strings.

Seating features and playful domes arise from those circular platforms, providing the functionality of the installation.

The result is a stimulating space for interacting with others, resting, playing and whiling away for some time. Visible from all floors, the colorful strings are an eye-catching element that triggers the curiosity of visitors to approach the atrium and look into the void to discover the what is happening.

Interior Intervention

What is an interior intervention?
It is the type of intervention that takes place in an indoor space, related to the altering of buildings and other spatial configurations, by inserting or installing new alienated elements within an existing interior environment.
 
This typology requires a careful adaptation to the context, the form and the structure of the host space, in other to proceed with a surgical or parasitic intervention that revamps the attributes of the space, changing completely the way it is perceived and used by its users.
 
Usually, this tactical intervention is based on the colonization of the existing surfaces of the space, without altering the three-dimensional configuration of the building. By coating or covering the existing surfaces or even by inserting alien objects, placed on top of the existing surfaces, we are able to add aesthetical and programmatic features that can enhance the functionality of the interior space.
