From the architect. Located at Alto dos Pinheiros area in São Paulo, the 170sqm building for the new Galeria Concreta art gallery is composed of tubular steel columns and beams, forming light porticos, supporting the glazed facades, mezanine and stairs.

The solid main facade wall, facing Macunis St, is built in “in situ” reinforced concrete cut by an horizontal opening that works as a “shop window”, where small art and design pieces could be displayed.

Next to the heavy concrete wall, a big vertical opening, allows the external observer to have a glance of the gallery interior.

The toilet located at the ground floor was conceived as a solid concrete volume, detached from the main steel and glass structure in a same tipology as the main facade, a brutalist contrapoint to the withe light steel structure and the transparancy of the glass.

The building is divided in two areas: public with the exibition area and semi private. The two areas are separated by a courtyard, wich allows controled access and better natural light and ventilation to the gallery.

The mezanine, besides the administrative use, could be also used for exibitions.

All rain water is collected, treated and re-used in the toilets flushes. Natural light is guaranteed through the glazed lateral, courtyard facades and skylight. The lateral facade was designed to receive suspended pots for landscaping , working as a green curtain or “brise soleil”.

Location to be used only as a reference. It could indicate city/country but not exact address. Cite: "Galeria Concreta / GCP Arquitetos" 25 May 2011. ArchDaily. Accessed . <http://www.archdaily.com/137075/galeria-concreta-gcp-arquitetos/>
