Leitão_653 is a building located in the heart of Pinheiros, a popular neighborhood which combines small traditional buildings and new residential towers. Inserted between two lofty towers, a long and narrow plot, the building is 4 meters wide and 25 meters high.

The studios occupying the building enjoy a smooth flow between the plates through a central tower. Alternating terraces on the 2nd floor and roof offer living areas and promote exchange and community life.

“Leitão 653″ was conceived as a place of inspiration in permanent connection with the city. This connection is provided by a set of transparency affirmed the facade. The building draws a cathedral light, completely revisited, like a latticework. The wall, multifaceted indeed plays to absorb light during the day. As for the night, light radiates as a goldsmith working in a casket. In this urban theater play scenes carved by a fine lace glass, cut and articulated as a Chinese shadow puppet show.

This gigantic panel allows smooth communication between the city and the interior of the building while providing a real solution to the constraints vis-à-vis. These scenes of transparency, a subtle eroticism, revealing another use of the building, visible from the street.

The uniqueness of this project lies in its layout that encourages emulation, the expansion as a business incubator, an urban incubator.
