PLATAFORMA ZERO  in  Porto, Portugal

A small space with just over 20m ² was the site for the deployment of this kiosk in the Casa da Música Metro Station in the city of Porto, Portugal.

This project was based on the idea of “pause”. Pause between commuting routes (home-work-home, home-school-home, etc.) where one color dominates: the yellow. As in the trilogy of chromatic lights os the semaphores, symbolizes a moment of pause, is among the movement and stopping.

The yellow as the predominant color, requires the interaction with neutral colors to highlight. Thus, the space is organized hierarchizing areas of public access with yellow and neutralizing (visually) the restricted areas with gray.

Being a space of reduced dimensions, we tried to create different types of spot lighting, treating exhibition spaces individually, creating gradients and focal points in the visitor’s attention.
