Designed by the Office Sabrine Santos Architecture & Interiors, the Saraiva Bookstore at Casa Cor 2011, will provide a new way to display books and magazines in digital form, integrating seamlessly with the conventional form of presentation and reading.
Through virtual shelves displayed in three large touch screen devices, digital books will be chosen to buy and read, but also on portable devices known as tablets, which are exposed for demonstration.

Another difference is the relaxed way of exposing the material works, magazines, audio and video on shelves and curved niches illuminated with RGB LED strips that change color.

The space will also feature an area of next-generation 3D games, where speakers will be addressable installed in the ceiling, not interfering in the sound´s place, being restricted to those who will be interacting with the game, both still unpublished in the country.
