Alegria Lounge and Restaurant
Alegria is located by the highest mounts around Belo Horizonte, where it’s usually colder.
A country club of sorts, the house homes big spaces for events, transition rooms, areas with enhightened lighting and others that are cozier. The pulse of the spaces provides for a surprising variety of environments: sometimes closer to the fire, sometimes closer to the reflecting pool; or close to the bars inside or out, close to the private rooms or to the verandas – an indoor garden with a view to the mountain skyline.
The dark wood, the polychrome walls, the glasses and the shutters make up for a language of the whole.
The blueprint focused on clarity, continuous lines that make reading and functions easy and direct the flows – in the choice of the materials, their elements, their sources, their life span and final destinations.
