Edifício Oceania is considered the most emblematic residential building in Salvador, capital of the state of Bahia, Brazil. In October 2021 I began a project to revitalise and repurpose a vacant space on the 2nd floor - bringing together local and international architects, local residents and stakeholders to prepare plans to reinstate the original grandeur of the building, delivering a 22 bedroom hotel, clubhouse, pool, restaurant, bar, library, gym and co-working lounge. ‍ The house will gather Baiano’s, immigrants and curious explorers from around the globe in spaces designed to encourage focus, play and collaboration. The project will revitalised a treasured local asset, defining an international cultural hub for Barra’s waterfront and solidifying it’s claim as the picture postcard of Salvador.
