A São Paulo au Brésil, l'agence d'architecture FGMF glisse entre deux bâtiments existants ce salon de coiffure à la façade de verre facettée. Baigné de lumière naturel le jour, l'édifice s'éclaire telle une lanterne à la nuit tombée.

Sur ce projet, FGMF Arquitetos précise:

"The building should be according to the aesthetic language developed as well by FGMF for the Kaze salon at Mooca neighborhood, in 2004, which became a symbol and standard for the entire chain.

Due to the minimal dimensions, the four floors of the building and the need for daylight, the façade composed by angled glass plates and the atrium gained great importance. The façade is the element which gives a contemporary look to the building, as its faceted form turns into a powerful lantern for the city at night.

As well as a means for natural illumination, the glass façade is part of a controlled ventilation and passive temperature control system. Some window panes can be opened, allowing the passage of air through all the internal environment, cooling it on its way to exhausters on the last floor.

The small sized lot allowed the building to merge with its urban environment, semi-detached as it is, but at the same time it is able to show individuality in the contrast with the surrounding buildings, qualifying the neighborhood in which it is settled."
