The "House of Mason John Baroni" (Casa do Maçom Joao Baroni) offers lodging to Masons and their families from all over Brazil who undergo treatment at the local Cancer Hospital. It is in Barretos, a suburb of Sao Paulo. It was constructed by the Grand Orient de Sao Paulo, and contains eleven furnished rooms for guests.

I'd like to speak to that architect. Broad Ripple Lodge needs a makeover.

UPDATE: Video showing construction and interior guest rooms of Casa do Maçom here.

The building was designed by André Ponciano.
