The city of São Paulo is one of the places in the world where urbanity is the most powerful and intense. An area where the beauty of the streets and buildings was forgotten for many years. Through the renovation of a 20 years building, formerly occupied by the electricity company Light , the new architectural project Triptyque, the Cultural Center of the Red Bull Station, appears as an important player in the rehabilitation center.
Based on the Bandeira square , the new cultural center hangs together auditory and visual arts through the production and dissemination of new forms of artistic expression.
The building was completely renovated respecting the architectural heritage concepts. A contemporary intervention was carried out in order to adapt the building to its new role as a cultural hub. The essence of the historic building has been preserved, and the beauty of its elements has been strengthened.
An architectural element was created to accompany visitors throughout their visit, from the stairs to the five floors of the Red Bull Station and numerous spaces. On the roof of the station , flaps a fleet metal called "sheet" that covers the terrace.
On one side of the ground floor is located the main gallery, a space that houses exhibitions of all forms of visual arts , performances and concerts. On the other side , is located a volume of concrete , carefully polished and sculpted that receives a music studio .
The basement has been converted into an exhibition space and music rehearsal rooms. Upstairs, six workshops were created for artistic residencies that will change each quarter. Around individual workshops, the " Gallery of transition " temporarily host projects in their creative process.
