Tienda de los Museos del Banco Central

San José, Costa Rica

This new store for Costa Rica’s museum of pre-Columbian gold artifacts lends an increased openness and visibility to the challenging subterranean location beneath the Plaza de la Cultura. The store’s perimeter has been enlarged and opened up with new trapezoidal windows, while the interior extends the museum’s triangular ceiling lattice into three dimensions, creating dramatic and unexpected display opportunities.
