Continuing their successful partnership, Perkins&Will São Paulo and Fleury Group, a reference in high-quality laboratory testing in Brazil with several units designed by the firm’s architects, partnered up to develop not only the interiors of the new headquarters but also the entire technical planning for the group’s central analysis and research laboratories, located in a building in the Brooklin district, in the southern region of São Paulo. Designers from the healthcare and corporate interiors teams of the studio worked together, demonstrating the effectiveness of the results that can be achieved through the combination of expertise within the same office.

The organization of the sectors, considering technical needs and comfort, is one of the main differentials.
