altino arantes library


An imposing mansion from the late 19th century steeped in historical heritage was given new meaning in a new context. Thus the Altino Arantes Library was formed, located in the city of Ribeirão Preto, in the interior of São Paulo. The project included the development of peripheral structure to the land, as to not interfere with the preciousness of the original property. The private initiative was designed for public use and today is a place to read and preserve the cities memory.
