This restaurant is located next to the soccer field of the EsporteClubePinheiros, a sport club with in 170 thousand square meters in the southwest region of São Paulo, Brazil. The proposal consolidated and expanded an old structure with locker rooms and a new restaurant close to the grandstand by the football field.
The restaurant has two floors with a lightweight canopy, where a tensile membrane for solar protection is supported by wooden structure, metal parts and steel cables. The construction spans along the longitudinal format of the grandstand, and the solution of a flexible cover allowed its positioning among the existing trees, avoiding their removal.
The use of tensile structures in some of our projects is the result of a research based on the work of Frei Otto using tree trunks for reforestation.
Material Used :
1. Ceramics Tiles - Portobello
2. Précrontrait cover fo tensile Structure – Serge Ferrari
3. Glass Railing – Q-Railing
