Headquarters of the association of lawyers of Sao Paulo
The Gastao Vidigal Building, the former headquarters of Sao Paulo's Stock Market, is architecturally speaking a typical bank building in Sao Paulo downtown.
The project to restore and renovate the building fits in with contemporary premises which accomodate new functions and activities, such as the headquarters of the Association of Lawyers of Sao Paulo. The new program for the building is composed of a library, a main auditorium (440 seats), 4 secondary venues and training rooms, in addition to the facilities of the administrative offices.
The development of a central atrium with translucent roofing on the top floor, as well as a set of corridors and metallic stairwells, integrate different activities that take place in this building. This design was given an Honorable Mention in the Annual Awards of IAB (the Brazilian Institute of Architects - Sao Paulo's department).
