A space for wellness in Brazil
Dois Tropicos is a wellness space with a botanic store, yoga class and restaurant, located in San Paolo and designed by MNMA Studio. The concept of the project is a hybrid space, where people can feel in every way the importance of spending time to take care of themselves, slowly and with pleasure. The material used was created by a process of cooking the subtle varied colours of earth into bricks; the same material was projected onto walls and ceilings, bringing texture, tone gradation and detail to the interior spaces.
