Sant Andreu Market

The new Sant Andreu market serves as a replacement for the previous building. It incorporates parts of the original metal structure, and the zinc is reused for the new roof. Additionally, the covered passage known as the “market retail area,” which features stalls selling non-food items, is being renovated.

The main building maintains a distance from the porches surrounding the square, reducing its visual impact. The facade consists of a low-rise, transparent base, while the taller sections are set back. Inside, the layout retains the three-bay configuration, with a sawtooth roof that utilizes trusses from the old side bays, optimizing natural light and ventilation.

To meet current requirements, a basement level is added to accommodate all the necessary building services and logistics for the market’s operations.

The transparency of the ground floor expands the market’s commercial activity into the square and the surrounding streets. The redevelopment of the square emphasizes the integration between the market and its surroundings, as the pavement flows seamlessly from the square into the interior of the market.

The retail area on the ground floor remains a covered passage, while a separate building with two additional floors is planned to house the market’s administrative services.
