Grand Prix 1999 – National Architecture Award – Honorable Mention

With the growth of the town, what was originally a peripheral street has now become a central route of communication, bringing together the centre and a residential district. This thorough going reconstruction economically re-arranged the course of operations, allowed for new developments of the commercial spaces, and gave the street an attractive form in keeping with its new status. 
The spine of the spatial concept is the row of columns, evocative of the rhythm of classical colonnades. Its fixed axis unifies the space not completely defined by the street; in addition, the columns have lights installed inside them, dispersing their light subtly into the street through diffusive shades.
