The Bandeira Building, near Vila Madalena Subway Station, is delicately inserted in the city, with the design of two volumes articulated together and with open gardens that expand the public walkway. Its shape responds to the desire to guarantee the best views of the living rooms and bedrooms of the apartments, spaces protected by a continuous balcony that expands into the living areas. The balcony, a transition space between the interior and the exterior spaces, protects the apartment from excessive sun, rain and expands the internal spaces.
