REFORM AND EXPANSION OF THE CUSTOMS BUILDING, TUI
Competition, first prize. Tui (2016-present)
Located on the border with Portugal in Tuy and on the Pilgrim’s Route to Santiago, the Customs Building has retained a special symbolic character, although it has lost its original use with the entry of Spain into the European Union.
In our proposal to transform it into the new headquarters of the Tui Chamber of Commerce we create a new access to the lower level by means of a large staircase, which allows us to recover the original levels and configuration of the building and create a small square that contributes to the urban carácter of the whole.
In combination with a two-story pavilion, information booth and exhibition hall, this space offers the opportunity to generate cultural and commercial activities that help to dinamize the area and complement the proposals of the Chamber of Commerce to promote Tui.
