contributed by dirkverwoerd

The open design of the Colón Market, which was restored in 2002 provides a very pleasant sensation of freshness. The interior of the market hosts everything from restaurants and bars to flower stalls and a small market offering delicatessen products. The restoration project has recreated an elegant monument in an environment where ultra-modernism goes hand-in-hand with modernism of the past. The contemporary project is a counterpoint to the historical building, leaving the eminent character of the monument intact - while creating a space to relax and enjoy the attractive city centre. The restoration work focuses on six glass cubes, with interior back-lighting, which house the ground floor establishments, leaving the lower floor for a restaurant, shopping area, and market hall. The lower floor connects visually with the ground floor through a gap at ground level, with escalator access against the backdrop of trees that reach upwards from the lower ground floor and a fountain.
