THE AGRIFOOD MARKET QUARTER IN ORAVIȚA
Oravița, Caraș-Severin / 2016 / 1.1 mil EUR / DALI / Orașul Oravița
The development project for the agrifood market quarters in Oravița looked out for the revitalisation of the market area as part of a valuable public space around the Trainstation Area of Oravița. The interventions targeted the different wings of the existing market and the public space tieing them togheter.
The urban area around the trainstation is an active one, gathering people form the foodmarket, the livestock market, of the comercial areas adiacent to the markets and, not least, the trainstation. It spans on two levels and it encloses a set of urban scale stairs.
The studied proposal brings value to the ample public area through the adding of informal public pockets, open rooms on the existing track. These small patios find their place in the nooks of the markets new geometry, in the buildings curving line or the platforms next to the stairs. The agrifood market and the livestock market gather as part of the same building with a fragmented volume and receeding geometry. Split into small volumes, the market integrates harmoniously in the surrounding dinamics and scale.
