This project consists in a renovation of a house located in Rio de Janeiro, Brazil. Set on a lively area, the noise control was one of the challenges, which in the end, had influence in the final look of the architecture itself. Movable shutters were integrated to the main facade, working as noise filters, but at the same time letting natural light into the space. The decoration focused on quality and elegance, rather then trends or styles. Almost all of the furniture used are signed by Brazilian and Italian designers.
