From the architect. The bold, contemporary building stands out for the originality of the implementation of volume, which accompanies the shape and slope of the land of almost 11,000 square meters.

Designed to serve as sales stand of Alphaville, which is a gated community away from Brasilia downtown, in a first moment and later a permanent facility for visitors interested in the project and conviviality, also will host events and cultural activities.

The blocks accompany the lot´s format and declivity, and are united by a corten steel grid composing the cover. The grid with 2 thousand square meters stands out in the complex due to its dimensions as well as for creating a central plaza which large trees were planted.

This covering grid crosses a 30 meters span and sits on seven concrete blades supporting a load of 50 tons. At some points the grid presents large openings leaving room for the tree tops.
