“BOAVISTA BUILDING” Retrofit
Downtown - Rio de Janeiro, Brazil; 2008
Located at a very busy corner of downtown Rio de Janeiro, this building sits at one of the most visible business spots.
It was completely modernized, adapted to answer the functional and safety demands of large corporations.
Though it has been vacant for a long time, the building was in good conditions, but it was necessary to change the air conditioning system and all the elevarors.
Shafts and new internal TV circuit, phone and internet installations were created. The office pavements had elevated floor and modular ceiling installed. A pressurized staircase was also created to attend all floors.
The alluminum casing and granite finishings were substituted by stainless steel.
