Casa Fasano is São Paulo's hottest new events venue

Casa Fasano is a rental space for events - weddings, receptions, corporate gatherings, etc -designed to accommodate up to 800 people for dinner or 1,200 for cocktail, at about 1,700sq m.The idea was to design a space as open and flexible as possible, so it could be set up in asmany different ways as necessary for the various types of events.

In simple terms, the building consists of a large glass 'case' (triple-height ceiling salon) out ofwhich a lower opaque solid (foyer on ground floor, service facilities on the first floor) projects out from.On entering the building guests reach first this low-ceilinged foyer, and further, the very high ceilinged salon - high enough for some Brazilian Grape trees to grow. A stage for liveperformances and some outdoors sitting spots are other attributes of the house.
