SP LAWYERS ASSOCIATION 

The headquarters of the Lawyer Assistance Fund of the São Paulo Lawyers Association was the result of a retrofit of an old building in downtown Sao Paulo, which previously had been the seat of the Portuguese Bank.

 

It was fully refurbished either internally and externally. The architectural party took into account the fact that the building is squeezed between two historical heritage buildings and in front of another historical heritage building. Thus, we took up as a base point that the building mode mirroring facade was supposed to reflect the other structures of the environment, creating a dialogue between the modern and the past, with priority to the surrounding historical buildings.
