Edifício Comercial João Moura. São Paulo, Brazil
The site is located on João Moura Street in the valley through which the Sumaré Av. The João Moura Street is an important connection between the neighborhoods of Vila Madalena and Pinheiros. For anyone who spends at Sumaré Av. the building has a striking presence. For this reason we try to give special attention to the north side facade and understand it as a great panel, composed of openings and colorful screens. For those who pass by João Moura Street, subfloor access is indented 10m from the front alignment, twice as required by law, ensuring a breather for street and highlighting the reception that advances toward the street. No walls or bars.
