SelgasCano Creates Bulbous-Formed Food Market With Transparent ETFE Membrane At Design District

Spanish architecture studio SelgasCanohas created a bulbous-formed food market with transparent ETFE membrane at Design District in London, United Kingdom.

Named Design District Canteen, the 660-square-metre building, located at the main pedestrian access to the Greenwich Peninsula, has been realized as part of a larger masterplan, including 16 different buildings commissioned by Design District. 

SelgasCano‘s design is basically conceived as a food market, consisting of a bar, stall, plant room, storage, market area, lift on the ground floor. The upper floor includes resting area, floating table, movable tables and lift. 

Designed as an irregular, bulbous-formed transparent structure, the whole structure is covered by a stressed clear ETFE membrane with a central spine in which the stalls and a seating area are placed on top level.
