Dois Trópicos: Feel-Good Retail, Yoga & Dining In One Place

We have been stumbling upon this outstanding concept and project over and over again, and it was time to share MNMA‘S Dois Trópicos today.

 

Architecture shouldn’t be seen as a profession or service because it’s much more than that. Architecture tells stories, produces profound connections between people and thier environment. We didn’t open the studio to have huge, great projects […] We might, say, use a technique that’s rooted in in tradition yet updated for today with modern technologies […] We create spaces for people, about the people.Mariana Schmidt, founder MNMA for FRAME Magazine

According to Mariana Schmidt, people in São Paolo seem to have no time; so they create spaces with the studio where you can be alone and experience solitude. Dois Trópicos aims to be a place in which you can simply spend time – where you just can breathe.

You’ll find a space for retail to buy rare species of plants and flowers, you can practice yoga, and will find options for mindful eating with the overall idea of slowing down. The facade is designed to let the elements in, so air-conditioning is not necessary. The allover sensation is like being at home; the brick furniture and flooring are crafted by artisan hands that desire to achieve not perfection but a memorable experience. Materiality is crucial; and so is its tonal palette of sand, dunes, soil, and fire.

Spatial design is no longer about authorship. It’s a group phenomenon and will become even more so in teh future. This is one of the reasons our studio is not named after us. Mariana Schmidt, founder MNMA for FRAME Magazine

The download of the Jotun Ebook and color palettes was a huge hit last year, so we thought to put it again together for our readers to have all 28 hues in one place and be able to work with it at all times.
