Studio Fuksas’ Markthauser Complex is Clad in an Ultra Modern Ceramic Facade
At first the building looks jarringly out-of-place when set against the old city’s vernacular — but on closer examination the design strives to forge a harmonious link with the past. Unlike some of its bland late-century concrete neighbors, the building is bright and airy, and it features an inviting street front that funnels visitors into the light-filled atrium. The project’s simple, abstract horizontal strips and classically sloped roof create contrast with the older buildings while transitioning from old to new and from concrete to cut stone.
