After 15 years searching Pippi eventually found the perfect space in the ideal location. Soon after purchasing the premises she began to create the main office. She researched materials that could transform and incorporate the space with a comfortable, cozy design and took advantage of the generous amount of natural light. She made sure to use sustainable materials such as burnt cement floors, drywalls with a concrete effect, brick walls, bamboo panels which are environmentally certified and LED lighting, in order to economize on energy.
The project was developed with ease and there was no challenge.The greatest difficulty was the implementation of the new bathrooms and the final definition of the furniture, because there were so many options and Juliana wanted to honor the Brazilian designs with pieces signed by them in all environments.
