From the architect. The Bookshop and Cafe originate from the simple act of covering, it is generated by a roof over the top of the hill, to accommodate those who want to browse a book or drink a coffee over the beautiful view of Campos do Jordão and under the aura of the self-imposing Boa Vista Palace and the unique São Pedro’s Chapel.

It is the glazing pair of boxes that marks the cultural meeting, between works of art from the Palace Collection, the architecture, the city and the natural environment of the Serra da Mantiqueira. It’s conception is based mainly on transparency, with lightweight wooden structure and glazing panels.
