In a region where extensive livestock predominated in the past, the promotion of tourism has given rise to new activities.

Following its expansion plan, Sebrae chose to deploy its new headquarters in Bonito, aiming to support micro and small enterprises that are emerging in that region of the state.

The architectural project was designed with an emphasis on sustainability, both in construction and in operationalization of the building. It also features references to the natural attractions of the region, where the transparency and color of the water are unique aspects.

When preparing the project, we sought to intervene minimally in the natural terrain profile, which has an uphill triangular conformation, with an area of ​​6,771.26 square meters.


The building suggests floating on a water mirror, coated in porcelain tiles that refer to the tone of the waters of the Formoso River, the municipality’s main tributary.

Similarly, the color indigo adopted in certain internal spaces refers to the waters of the blue lake grotto, the city’s most iconic place.

In order to mitigate the environmental impact of the construction process, its structure was designed predominantly in trusses and metal pillars.

Inclined planes in insulated eco-lite glass decrease sunlight in the environments.

External seals are contain thermal insulation in polyurethane and melamine coating panels. The interior, in turn, is made in plasterboard.

Linear openings in the cantilevered floor end over the water surface, plus the ridge vent along the thermoacoustic coverage, promote aeration while reducing the need for mechanical ventilation systems in the lobby.

The building is equipped with photovoltaic panels to provide energy self-sufficiency, as well as systems for reusing rainwater.

It has 718.40 square meters in built area, distributed over two stories. It houses administrative offices, internal and external training rooms (through the dock truck adapted for itinerant courses) and a lobby, designed as a multipurpose space to be used also by the community, as needed.
