Some people like to say that can't work at the beach, that they loose focus around great beaches. Here in Brazil there is an office located in Salvador, Bahia that is a great example about how the beach can actually be a great inspiration for your everyday work routine. Besides the really nice architecture, the views are simply astonishing.

Sidney Quintela is an architecture office that works with several kinds of projects, from houses to stores, to restaurants and big buildings. The workday for an architect can be pretty heavy, but I'm sure that a place like this inspire great ideias and quality of initiatives - which probably leads the architects to complete their drawings faster. They have big spaces, the white color takes most of the spaces and everything is bright and clear, besides the huge windows with really nice beach views.

The architecture of Sidney Quintela starts by the observation of new metropolitan society habits, where the need of a reinvention of spaces appears - at the same time that they don't want to loose the influence of the local culture, nature and its surroundings.
