The building is located in a neighbourhood on the west side of Sao Paulo, Brasil where artistic life and creativity increasingly shape the streetscape. The site is distinguished by the climate of a tropical country with massive rain showers and very high temperatures, as well as rich soil with natural underground systems.

Harmonia // 57 is an office building, with a planted fa├žade irrigated by a mist system. The walls are thick and covered externally by a layer of vegetation that works like the skin of the structure. This dense wall is made of an organic concrete that has pores, where several plant species grow.
