Sao José Dos Campos, Brazil
Mixed use complex located on the highway connecting Sao Paulo and Rio de Janeiro. Bound by a common underground parking it embodies independent buildings including a shopping mall, two office towers, hotel and convention center.
The Shopping Mall’s volume, the biggest of all, solves the sites massive 20m slope. The center’s mass is partially hidden, providing a highly iconic view of the building from the highway.
Opposite to the highways façade linking all buildings a ground level landscaped pedestrian path with North-South orientation takes place. From the Malls side an open food court plaza is visible. Limiting the garden area in front of the mall, the rest of the buildings offer privileged views of São José Dos Campos city.
