Edifício Guinle (in english – The Guinle Building) can be considered the first vertical building in the São Paulo city. Built from 1913 to 1916, it was one of the first constructions of reinforced concrete in the country. At a time when the highest buildings were 3-storey buildings, this project of architects Hipólito Gustavo Pujol Júnior and Augusto de Toledo reached 8 floors and it is 36 meters high. The façade is ornamented in Art Nouveau style, with motifs of coffee branches and fruit, consigning the richness brought by the coffee economy.
