Text description provided by the architects. The Project for two office buildings located on Parque das Nações fits into a rectangular lot with three fronts. They are isolated structures that rise from a common landscaped platform and are compatible in size. A parallelepiped finishes the top of the block while it encloses the plaza outlined by the H shaped building. The main entrances of both buildings meet face to face in this public space interstitial to the street level which is extended on the upper level garden where one may walk around and take in the surroundings.

The interior space is based on an open-space concept supported by a central circulation area. In either building this vertical column is directly connected to the exterior allowing the flow of natural light and offering a view of the city and river.

The complex is reinforced by the similarity between the buildings.

Plan

The structural mesh made up of slab and pillar is visible and appears protected by a “skin” in a detached surface – a metallic mesh in one building and glass in the other – which protects from light and affords privacy. This box placed over the structural interior is incomplete, thus exposing part of the functional truth in the rafters of both buildings. These have metallic stairs that, in turn, are captivated by the green shades of the garden.
