Corporate Building – Barra Trade IV
Barra da Tijuca - Rio de Janeiro, Brazil; 2009
This is Barra Trade Series last project , located at the “office Park”, where the other five builidings are. This project opted to point the main access to the North facade, turned directly to Luiz Carlos Prestes Avenue, opposed to the other buildings, turned to Barra Shopping (East).
This location privileges pedestrian access and gives a strong and remarkable identity to the building.
Here, due to a change at the local urban legislation, it was possible to have a commercial use to a partly underground pavement.
Thanks to big glass walls utilization and to an intern patio, was possible to have all ambients receive a significant natural light quantity, and gathered with the surrounding deck, eliminate the claustrofobic feeling it might occur.
