The Zaragoza Central Market has reopened following a refurbishment project that started 2018 with the aim of returning the building to its original splendour and giving its beautiful and iconic structure pride of place. The Zaragoza market has been completely modernised following a comprehensive renovation of this modernist building, created in 1895 by Aragonese architect, Félix Navarro.
ELT collaborated on the lighting project, integrating its decorative lighting products into the structure of 20 iron trusses that make up the central gallery and side aisles. By including these products, the aim of those responsible for the project was to highlight the modernist structure of the building, integrating a line of soft, uniform light alongside colour stability.
The products installed in the project were:
- LV-C2 driver
- eLED VEC 28 strip
- SUP MIDI profile in grey
- Transparent diffuser
THE CENTRAL MARKET
An emblematic building in Zaragoza, it was designed in 1895 by Aragon-born architect, Félix Navarro, to replace the traditional open air market that used to be held in the former market square.
It was declared a national historical monument in 1978 and since 1982 has been a Site of Cultural Interest. Prominent are its two modernist-style façades with their neo-classical details, in which materials such as stone and brick have been used mixed with other more innovative materials of the day, such as iron and glass.
