Best Project of Private Residence
About the project
We respect the avant-garde, but we prefer to design based on the lessons left by the great Brazilian architects. We base our work on the composition of pure forms; the use of materials in their essence; the structural logic and the relationship with the local. It may seem paradoxical, but we are traditionally modern.
