The project is located on the paulista shore in the region of the Rain Forest and the land has a mountainous topography with dense vegetation. The introduction of this house to this landscape has the objective of optimizing the connection between architecture and nature, privileging the view looking out to the ocean and the incidence of sunlight in the internal spaces. Furthermore, the positioning of the house on the site obeyed the previously-open area in the vegetation.

ATUM is a shared workspace that focuses is the quality of life at work. Designed in an area of 200 square meters, inside a mall, the space has as its theme the flexibility of different uses. All furniture was designed and thought to be changeable. During the day the scenario is a co-working and at the night it turns into a space to host events and lectures. The concept of quality of life was explored through creating different visuals for each workstation. Some tables were positioned facing windows with the park view, the other stations were proposed in a concept of green islands, whose plants are a mobile core surrounded by stands of different heights forming a modular composition. A natural wooden bookcase with 25m length serves as a background to the space. Different formats of workstations and lounges set the scene generating a timeless and innovated ambiance. Parallel to the bookshelf, a black linear block has been created with individual rooms, meeting room, support area and a mini gallery that serves to demarcate the main entrance. The layout designed aimed the sharing environments bringing a new way of working within a commercial space.

Dwelling in Sertãozinho-SP, Brazil built through the “Minha Casa Minha Vida” program, offering attractive financing conditions for low-income families.
The rough, sturdy exterior of the stone contains and protects the preciousness in its interior. By closing itself to the street, the building conserves in its center what in it exists of most valuable, the void. The patio here plays the role of an articulation element and stage for everyday life. The existence of the central space as an event and nucleus of spatial organization is an incentive to the encounter of people and collective coexistence.

From the restinga to the intervention plan, the project for a single-family residence in Atami has as its starting point in the invitation to bonding. From the demands for design, moments of relaxation in the family topped the list of problems to be solved; Perhaps, if not for sure, this justifies the four suites that compose the superior volume of the residence that still contains a spacious Master Suite.

The New Padel Pavillion softens with its presence the material frontiers between public and private space at the Parolin neighborhood in Curitiba, Brazil. This is specially noticed during the day, due to the players flows around the club headquarters, or during the evening, when the pavilion acts as a significant, LED light, urban lamp. The physical impermeability, common to massive private sport pavilions, is reduced in this project for the simplicity of its architectonic strategy based in three elements: limits defined by green walls, base in podium and encasement as a suspended box.

Early in 2015 Bruno Barros a young musician/ engineer completing his education at the Musicians Institute in Hollywood, CA. decided to create a destination studio in Belo, Horizonte. His family retained famed Brazilian architect João Diniz to design a luxury home overlooking the Minas Gerais mountain range. Barros knew it was critical for the architect and the acoustician/studio designer to begin their collaboration at the earliest planning phase to insure the studios optimal acoustic environment. Henrique Portugal, keyboard player for top Brazilian band Skank, recommended Belo Horizonte-based WSDG Walters-Storyk Design Group partner/director of design (and Latin Grammy Award-winning producer/engineer) Renato Cipriano to Barros, and the wheels were put in motion. Construction began in 2015 and the studio opened in late 2017.
