Located high on a hill and opened in 2011, Livraria e Café (Bookstore and Café) is a landmark project of 146 m2 that refers to the work of Mies van der Rohe. Large verandas and pergolas welcome the users of the space and integrate the internal and external environments, also allowing the dialogue of the new work with the old buildings of Boa Vista Palace and São Pedro Chapel.
