Banco Sabadell Atlantico Entrance and Awning
This project consists of a minor intervention in the entrance to an existing bank building. The architects have highlighted the intervention at three different levels. Firstly, the flooring is a white sheet that touches the ground at either extreme (as a ramp or as a stairway) and floats over it at the centre. Secondly, the awning is effectively a large trough that collects rainwater and channels it down to the ground at either end. Lastly, the finishes of the doorway (a series of mirrors, doormats and glazed surfaces) seek to break down the image of passage into independent photographic stills, highlighting the singularity of the movement: an interchange between exterior and interior.
