Sebrae by Gil Carlos de Camilo

Sebrae headquarters in Bonito, Brazil.

The architectural project was designed with an emphasis on sustainability, both in construction and in operationalization of the building. It also features references to the natural attractions of the region, where the transparency and color of the water are unique aspects. The building suggests floating on a water mirror, coated in porcelain tiles that refer to the tone of the waters of the Formoso River, the municipality’s main tributary. Similarly, the color indigo adopted in certain internal spaces refers to the waters of the blue lake grotto, the city’s most iconic place.
