Forested Office Atria

Morumbi Corporate's Office Features a Verdant Interior

— May 16, 2018 — Art & Design
Considering Sao Paolo's natural beauty, it can be difficult for architects to give people reasons to enjoy being indoors, but the Morumbi Corporate complex, a building designed by Aflalo/Gasperini Arquitectos, manages to do so. The building harnesses nature rather than trying to outdo it thanks to an airy atrium that's filled with tropical flora.

The ground floor of the Morumbi Corporate complex is designed to serve as a public meeting space as well as a welcome area for those who work in the building. The complex is located close to the Morumbi Shopping district, so a pleasant indoor area is a great way to attract people looking to do some shopping in the newly expanding southern zone of Sao Paolo.
