Santander Parklet

Estúdio HAA! as Architects

The Santander Bank, from an ideas competition, selected the project by Estúdio HAA! in a partnership with Soul Urbansimo, to accomplish the urban interventions around São Paulo city, in parklet format. The restaurants at the heart of Itaim (São Paulo district), and also nearby universities, gain a new face with the new parklets installed, giving a new function to the city’s parking spaces.


The initial idea was to bring a moving and illuminated atmosphere of the automobiles that circulate around the city to inside theses smalls public spaces of permanence and recreation, through a illumination project attached to the small urban intervention.


With more comfort e much more to offer, the new parklets promise to make the streets much more than just a path from a point to another. The Santander search to realize the integration between the people and the city, and for this was elaborated a celebrative garden on the parklets – a free space to participation of everyone that wants a much more beautiful city. Residents and goers of the region can plant and take care of the garden created around of the new parklets.


The Estúdio HAA! Prestige the change by the integration, the seats were project to be ergonomic generating more comfort. At night they will be illuminated with LED lights surrounding the parklets. We expect that these new spaces be a small pieces of Home. Places to meet and accommodate in the street.
