GAMA IMPORTS SHOWROOM​

Location: Quito - Ecuador
Client: Private
Area: 1200m2
Year: 2013-2014

In one of Quito ’s most commercial and consolidated areas, there is a lack of new space for development. Due to this, there is a significant interest to renovate old residential buildings and convert them into commercial buildings.

Gama Imports Showroom is a project that transformed a three-story residential building into a four-story showroom, including an additional floor for storage.
