Saraiva Bookstore – // Studio Arthur Casas
I enjoy the unique, oasis concept of this shop, but what really caught my eye was the children’s area. The low, deep seats allow children to sit, lay or roll around with their newest adventure. Glowing cubbies highlight the latest and greatest, and a low shelf under the seating invites exploration. Big, comfy bean bags on the floor add softness and remind us that, even though the space looks awesome, we’re really allowed to relax.

São Paulo firm Studio Arthur Casas designed this bookshop in Rio de Janeiro for Brazilian retailer Saraiva. Saraiva Bookstore was conceived as a hybrid between a public square and a library, a place for conviviality, leisure, concentration and rest at the same time. Its architecture is simple and inviting, it aims to disappear behind the books to let the mind wander about their content.
