Una Arquitetos - Garoa Store, São Paulo SP, Brazil

Leonardo have just shot this little store located in Oscar Freire Street, the most glamorous commercial street in São Paulo, Brazil.
The main idea is this volume you can see in the image, made of black concrete, that suffers a strange cut on the corner, showing violently the white interior, like a section of a project. At the same time the small plot is partially built, while a vertical patio, connected to the commercial street, occupies almost a half of the lot.
