The main function of these is to link the exterior and interior of the block from the gallery as a space for mediation and where public space is mixed with the commercial one. In Valdivia, a city where it rains most of the time, this type of space is an opportunity to experience the city throughout the year and revitalize the public space and local business.

It is built a dense volume, permeable, covered with public spaces that provide shelter from inclement weather and which integrates public spaces.
