Cais das Artes Brasil

“Cais das Artes” brings together a theater with capacity for 1,300 spectators, a museum with 3000 square meters of exhibition area, plaza, library, auditorium and café.

The project seeks to relocate Vitória, the capital of Espírito Santo state, on Brazil’s cultural map.

Cais das Artes Brasil

Located in the “Enseada do Suá”, a long flat area that forms the island of Vitória, the “Cais das Artes” is designed to set a public promenade along the sea. The buildings are suspended to allow free view of the mountains of Penha Convent, important point of the local landscape, and create a large plaza for public use.

The exploration of the relationship between nature and construction was crucial for defining the route of visiting the Museum. Designed with large balconies, vertical circulation ramp will allow the visitor to observe several points in the city also inside the building.

Cais das Artes

The project itself becomes a visual reference in Vitória’s Harbour, and is visible from several viewpoints in the city.
