Partage Shopping In Brasília (Brazil) With Architecture By Cité Arquitetura + Sá & Almeida Arquitetura E Paisagismo And A LEED Certificate
Sustainable materials and integration with the native cerrado biome are factors for LEED certification for Brasília’s first lifestyle center
The conception of Partage Shopping Brasília (Brazil) was born from the search for innovation, in a joint work between the Brazilian architectural firms Cité Arquitetura, led by Celso Rayol and Fernando Costa, and Sá & Almeida, led by Marcos Sá, with the support of the consultant André Ryfer and the architect Ian Joels, added by the contributions of the Partage Group.
Holistically, the premise involved was to integrate architecture, interiors, landscaping, and furniture design with the local landscape and culture, in addition to achieving LEED certification for sustainability.
“Understanding the role played by malls in unifying place and collectivity in urban life, associated with the yearning for contact with the outer world around us and its preservation, this project becomes a beacon of innovation in the Brazilian shopping mall market”, says Celso Rayol from Cité Arquitetura.
The project, which spreads over its terrain creating wide and fluid spaces, permeated by natural light and cross ventilation, kept much of the existing native vegetation and captured the textures and colors of the cerrado in its elements.
“Its main anchor is not the complex store, but a park of ten thousand square meters, with more than a thousand preserved native trees, a true “public promenade” interspersed with a diversity of uses in close relationship with the outdoors”, says Marcos Sá from Sá & Almeida firm. In the landscaping, the sinuous forms in the paving and furniture are inspired by the trails that cut the local highlands in the South American savannah, taking inspiration in the rock formations while seeking visual amplitude and spatial diversity.
The project complements an existing urban infrastructure hub, formed by a commercial park and the international airport of Brazil’s capital city. It was designed in a way that commercial operations and leisure options can now count with an attractive promenade, in constant contact with nature and the outdoors, adding a new architectural narrative to its immediate surroundings. The poetic perception of the different phases of natural light during the day makes for a true walk in the open air, combining the sensory experience with commercial use.
“The mall was born, since the initial project, with the most up-to-date concepts of sustainability, with LEED certification (Leadership in Energy and Environmental Design, used for green buildings) as a goal, prompting the natural lightning and ventilation projects and leading up to integration with the native cerrado species preserved inside the mall”, explains Adriano Capobianco, commercial and new business director at Partage Group.
The inspiration in place is reflected in the architecture by its shapes, the texture of the coatings, and the predominant reddish color that refers to the clay characteristics of the soil in the Planalto Central, where Brasília sets place in the center of the country. Shops and kiosks sprout from the ground like termite mounds or rocks of the Cerrado, while large light slatted roofs shade the space like the clouds in Brasilia’s famous sky. Perforated sheets in the shape of leaves draw attention to the richness of the native flora, protecting the Gourmet Market. In it, there are several restaurant options and points of sale of regional and international producers with a rich offer of special products. The space will also hold gastronomy workshops.
It’s a shopping center for a new era, focused on experience and lifestyle, offering healthier environments and a new concept of collective space. A project that balances the experience of urban public spaces and life in society in a more sustainable setting, reflecting the landscape and local culture, where nature participates effectively in architecture.

Cité Arquitetura is a studio with 10 years whose joint experience of its partners goes back over 30 years. Founded by architects Celso Rayol, president of AsBEA-RJ, professor and postgraduate at PUC-Rio, and Fernando Costa, a counselor at Ademi-RJ and postgraduate at FGV, Cité Arquitetura values the organization and method in the creation of projects and has a multidisciplinary technical team, prepared to design at different scales and programs.
These attributes guarantee quality control and more synergy in the meeting of the works with the city. In addition, believe that the projects that have brought us awards are the result of our understanding that designing is not a monologue, but part of a broader dialogue with the city.
Among some of his award-winning works are Sorocaba 112, one of the Cité’s first, and the modernization of the JK Memorial, in Brasília, nominated for Building of the Year in 2017 by Archdaily; Borges 3647, winner of the AsBEA/RJ Award in 2017 in the Residential Buildings category, member of the yearbook of Projeto magazine in 2020 and nominated for the Work of the Year 2022 Award at Archdaily Brasil; Miguel Couto, in the shortlist of the Domus Prize for Restoration and Conservation, an international award from Build magazine; and the Complexo Multiuso, on Ilha do Fundão, awarded in the Professional category of the Saint Gobain Award in 2015.
As a set of work, Cité was named Most Client-Focused Residential Architecture Studio by Build Magazine in 2021. At Partage Shopping Brasília we had the opportunity to collaborate with Sá&Almeida Arquitetura, further expanding the idea of architecture as a result of constant dialogue. www.citearquitetura.com.br.
