Pto de contato in Sao Paulo, Brazil by Studio GGA

Coworking is a versatile meeting, communicating and workbench table system providing modern workplaces. The layout of the tables demonstrates a thoughtful approach to the floor plan and generates this way a functional network. The scheme is centered on the provision of small work units for self employed and studios; obviously sharing tables and space with others. “Pto de contato” is a platform of experimentation, a deliberate contrast to usual offices, offering huge tables and informal spaces for sharing.

  • Location: Augusta road 2690, Galeria Ouro Fino, Sao Paulo, Brazil

The project is on the third floor of a commercial mall from the sixties in Sao Paulo, Brazil. This includes the big office space with a floor area of 165m2, two meeting rooms and a refurbished terrace. Due to a tight budget an interesting range of minimal shapes and simple materials were used with the intention to pursue simplicity and to reinterpret an existing space into something altogether more surprising. Exposing the existing structure opened up the space and helped to bring natural light deep into the room and to integrate natural ventilation.

The qualities of suspended fluorescent lamps were deemed appropriate for the space due to their simplicity and resulting in a light system that is both attractive and functional. The generous terrace is the informal area inviting the user to relax.
