The very white and very tight rectangular hallway for exhibition that leads to an outside terrace in a naturally green environment which is so suitable for an open-air cafe.

'This gallery is different from our work of art as well as the people affected are aware of the visit here of the works on display, as well as the gallery, or left natural, some influence from the surrounding environment response was designed to trigger a rethink things.
This space is a cylinder with no air conditioning as a direct response to the environment.
Time and seasonal visitors will have to design their own action to the weather.
Here we are having the usual fall in the space environment, rather than the environment (work) to meet the people (affected), is the space.
Width 1.6m, height 2.14m, Depth 15m. In this tight space, or how to get what the artists exhibited their works or of the birth of a new or adapted in this space, we hope to present a space beyond the intended use of the designer.'

I do like the entrance, that feeling of walking into a box and then being surprised by what opens up before you.
