Projects Wanted - Plataforma Zero, by A2OFFICE

This week we publish a project sent by A2OFFICE regarding a 20 sqm interior space. The project is located in Porto (Portugal), inside a subway station's retail area, and is designed to integrate a small business that is supposed to be open to the public in a very busy crossing point. The project was executed between 2012 and 2013 and the photographic work was conducted by Alexandra Marques.

We are open to receive projects from all around the world, regardless of their dimension or typology. Please send us high quality photos (indicating their authors), drawings and descriptive texts in English to our Marketing e-mail - It will be our pleasure to help spreading new Architecture concepts and ideas.

 "A small space with just over 20m ² was the site for the deployment of this kiosk in the Casa da Música Metro Station in the city of Porto, Portugal.
This project was based on the idea of ​​"pause". Pause between commuting routes (home-work-home, home-school-home, etc.) where one color dominates: the yellow. As in the trilogy of chromatic lights os the semaphores, symbolizes a moment of pause, is among the movement and stopping.

The yellow as the predominant color, requires the interaction with neutral colors to highlight. Thus, the space is organized hierarchizing areas of public access with yellow and neutralizing (visually) the restricted areas with gray. Being a space of reduced dimensions, we tried to create different types of spot lighting, treating exhibition spaces individually, creating gradients and focal points in the visitor's attention."
