The Firma Casa is Designed with Sustainability in Mind

The Firma Casa by The Campana Brothers and SuperLimão Studio is a bold art gallery designed with sustainability in mind. Fusing both form and function, the sleek structure features a serrated facade that is made up of geometric plant pots displaying greenery inside them.

Located in the heart of São Paulo, Brazil, the Campana Brothers' first landscape architecture project houses over 6000 plants. The Firma Casa facade is filled with countless stems of the nations' local snake plants that are hung in origami-inspired aluminum vases placed together to form a sharp geometric pattern.

Taking advantage of the region's heavy rainfall, the gallery's draining system by SuperLimão Studio provides a purposeful and ecologically responsible solution for purifying existing water without wasting energy sources.
