INHABIT seeks to revitalize Lina Bo Bardi’s restaurant, the Coati, as the primary driving force behind the preservation and rehabilitation of the Ladeira da Misericórdia. Throughout her career, Lina Bo Bardi thoughtfully scaled her architectural interventions to address the true needs of a project. INHABIT reanimates this successful approach by designing a series of tailored interventions on the Ladeira that work to unify the site and prioritize Salvadorian life through a celebration of the power and richness of food.
