Treaded as a place where people are coming from different directions – physical, ideological, religious or cultural – meet and create social or commercial relations and continue together. We see the Market as a place of transition, like a ladder (the old name of Larnaka, is “Skala”, meaning ladder if you translate it), as a tool to help in creating conditions that will enable the sit to regenerate, to upgrade and become more attractive.  It will be the interspace, the transition,   the link, from and to the environment.

A Form that will also be a Connection, a Transition, a Transformation of History and Tradition of the Market, friendly and gentle to the built environment and will be a landmark.

The project consisted by the Market building 4000sq.m and the multilevel building of the parking space 10000sq.m.
