Image description

The image shows the facade of a supermarket, respectively the frontage with the entrance of a store larger in size and supplies than of a market and smaller than of a hypermarket.

The shop is built with ground floor and floor, the ground floor having windows marked as empty squares and joined horizontally, and above them are the windows of the floor, rendered by texture of oblique and parallel lines.

The top and bottom edges of the supermarket are highlighted embossed.

The automatic door, at the bottom center, represents the main entrance for customers and is marked by a vertical rectangle, filled with dotted texture.

Near the store, in the lower right corner, there is a man standing, thus positioned to facilitate the comparison of the dimensions of the building to the height of an adult.

General data
