Text description provided by the architects. Sao Paulo Corporate Towers was developed through a partnership between Pelli Clarke Pelli Architects and aflalo/gasperini architects who were responsible for the viability study, project tropicalization and technical development.
Situated in the Vila Olimpia neighborhood with entrances from Juscelino Kubitschek Avenue, Chedid Jafet Avenue and Funchal Street, it’s therefore an undertaking with ease of access; neighboring the People’s Park (Parque do Povo) the buildings have a clear view over the River Pinheiros expressway hub and can be seen in their totality from all angles.
The vast plot has more than 19,000 square meters of green area with very old native trees that shaped the entire landscaping project. On the site sit two corporate towers, askew, forming a dynamic composition in the urban landscape; one amenities building housing a convention center, a restaurant and a cafeteria which are connected to a staggered basement covered by gardens; and one technical building housing equipment and the power plant.
The building holds a Leed Platinum 3.0 pre-certification thanks to the efficient management of energy, water and of the users’ well-being.
