The Rodeio Restaurant located in Sao Paulo, Brazil was designed in 2011 by the architect Isay Weinfeld as their first high-rise building branch even if the traditional steakhouse restaurant was operating for 60 years.

The status upgrade needed a contemporary ambiance and the designers brought that with an aesthetic that references the history of the “churrasco” which is meat placed on large skewers and grilled over hot coals as was typical for the “vaqueiros” of the region.

The cowboy reference is implemented through the use of ropes as a main decorative element on the walls and the chairs are upholstered in cow hides with dark wood used as panels for the ceiling and walls. The entrance is made through the bar and an elevator leads to the eighth floor where the main hall is located with a large grill in the center to determine the overall layout with a design that also took care of the concerns about acoustic comfort or barbecue smoke.
