Bina Osteria/Alimentari brings together the functions of the restaurant and grocery store under a single identity: a canopy that spans from one end to the other of the two programs. The existing space offered very tightly spaces columns that defined the spine of the project: tall concrete shafts that both limited the spatial options, but also defined the character of the space. While arrayed on the longitudinal axis, none of the columns are of equal dimension, borrowing their peculiarities from the loads of the tower above.
