The Stores Marketplace

Cavill Architects en tant que Architectes.

The client’s brief was to establish a fresh food marketplace. We proposed that the key to the project lay less in the architecture and more in the makeup of the vendors. A study of various contemporary and historic market precedents led us to identify the attributes we believed central to the making of a true market. 
The site is located on a harsh, ex-industrial arterial where little public amenity remains. From the very earliest conversations we identified an opportunity to make a generous contribution to the public realm. Careful consolidation of the program within the existing structures afforded the opportunity to program “leftover” space.  Centered around a central pedestrian thoroughfare, a series of rooms and courtyards form organisational elements and a series of gathering places for the community.

Project in association with Jasper Brown Architects.
