The Gallery building accommodates the offices for the management companies that operate in the marinas, a small gym as well as multifunctional rooms and crew rooms. It is a two-floor building located on a platform over water, taking advantage of a mooring area that was not in use.

The design seeks to emphasize the idea of continuity towards the exterior, working with criteria that evoke the interior of a boat.

The distribution strategy is based on grouping the closed areas that have the most private activities, such as offices and services. The interstitial space is freed for transit and public use, seeking a closer relationship and contact with the exterior environment and its views.
