1941 – 1942

A marketplace filling a vacant street lot has been built during World War II on the edge of the historical core, creating a passage linking the city core with southern suburbs that grew up later. Two-level marketplace had a sheltered ground floor. Retail areas on the upper floor were accessible by two side staircases. Closable arcade had a series of small stores on one side. The building is finished with brick-like ceramic tile cladding. Vast exterior facade surfaces were done in glass block, complemented with a series of circular windows. The building has been rebuilt in the sixties into a grocery supermarket.
