The project re-interprets the pergola idea with a closed ceiling and transparent walls. A thin bent sheet keeps two glass boxes together (a store of eno-gastronomic products, produced by the firm, and offices) leaning on a route going to the citrus plantation. A light modeling of the ground modifies the point of view, permitting to stoop under the trees foliage. The architecture interlaces its structures with the routes of a real botanic garden, populated by all the possible kinds of citrus fruits, along which there are the biological products store, the eno-gastronomical store and the marmalade-production store.
