Completed in 2006, the bindery’s where art works.

The studio for Ma Nao Books also serves as a venue for performances, lectures, demonstrations, and all manner of creative expression, tango included.

Glass-paneled garage doors allow southern and northern light and open to two ground-floor patios. Bamboo cabinetry floats above bamboo flooring, which itself is suspended, making it easy to work and play on one’s feet for hours.
