BAHIA DESIGN DISTRICT

The masterplan with Fera Investimentos for Bahia Design District reformulates Rua Chile as the center of urban and cultural life in Salvador. Rua Chile in Salvador, Bahia was Brazil´s first official planned street and was for many years the center of Brazil until the moving of the capital to Rio de Janeiro.

The plan for Bahia Design District is formed by a series of careful and precise architectural interventions in and around Rua Chile. With Cinearte, Fera Palace Hotel, Fera Lofts, Palacete, Palazzo Sodré, Delicatessen, and Barreiro studios, Rua Chile will once again become the center of urban life in Salvador.

DELICATESSEN

The Delicatessen building is a beautiful ruin, only the facades are left, propped up by temporary supports, barely standing. No roof, it’s a modern day Pompeii. How to preserve this monument yet accommodate new life into its shell?

Our design strategy inserts a completely new building behind the historic shell. The facades are returned to their former glory, the building behind gradually retracts to leave the original facades untouched and maintain the monumental quality of the ruin.

The new building is classic Brazilian, concrete slabs and glass facades. Super simple, super transparent, super attractive. New meets old. The building is one of the key additions to the Bahia Design District Masterplan, interstiching new and old Salvador.
