ABOUT US

 

We are a young company that develops projects of Urban Planning, Architecture and Design. Even diversified, all have the same concept in common, that is, visualizing the architect with the responsibility of doing projects that meet human needs and aspirations.

 

Each element of each project must be an expression of the intended life in a building. The strength of our production lies in the geographic and cultural diversity in which we work. We create projects in different locations around Brazil and around the world. They are specific to each place and culture - they are inspired and developed based on the historical, cultural and social characteristics of their places. Celebrating the unique character of each place, we create buildings that transcend the idea of belonging to the place.

We believe that architecture comes from a vision related to ways that can affect people's lives. It is our duty to design buildings and living spaces that meet human needs and aspirations. For example - a school, above all, should be a wonderful place for learning. Or a restaurant should be a cozy place that invites you to rest and meet. Each element of each project should be an expression of the intended life in a building.

 

Responding to the essence of the place

Architecture with a purpose

We believe that architecture arises from a vision related to ways that can affect a person's life.
It is our duty to design buildings and living spaces that meet human needs and aspirations. For example - a school, above all, should be a wonderful place for learning. Or a restaurant should be a cozy place that invites you to rest and meet. Each element of each design should be an expression of the pretended life in a building.

Designing Responsibly

Well before becoming a fashionable term, sustainability has been a guiding principle of our work. As architects, we are committed to addressing issues of energy conservation, ecology and renewable materials. We have to use resources efficiently while we meet the goals of our customers.

 

Sustainability, in its essence, implies a mode of construction that is sensitive to geography and local culture. This approach not only addresses the important ecological goal, but also enhances the sustainability of building use and value to its owners. Whenever possible, we choose to work with regional building materials and use local manpower. We always seek the preservation of resources and build the maximum with the minimum.

INTERVIEW ABOUT THE PROJECT

RESTAURANT  LE MANJUE ORGANIQUE

The goal was to make the dining space of the restaurant as pleasant as a dinner in a garden.

Letting nature conquer the entire space of the double height and using natural materials creates a feeling of coziness, the same one that we feel when we try the recipes with organic and functional ingredients of the chef.

 

The choices in the project, gave preference to Simple, Good, Natural and Creative solutions.

Only native Brazilian plants were used for landscaping.
 
The paint base is earth with natural dyes, the ceiling is covered with cork with FSC certification seal (wood for reforestation), and the wood furniture is made of reforestation wood or reused wood (wine boxes and pallets).

Interview for the TV show "Green Architecture" (Arquitetura Verde ) about the project for Restaurant Le Manjue Organique. 

GENESIS HOUSE 

This project was developed for a couple who would like a practical and one-story house to welcome their daughters, grandchildren and friends.


The challenge was to make a single-storey house on a 10-meter slope.


But it was possible to make a house with a project designed to the smallest details to make it economical and comfortable.


The environments were distributed according to the position of the sun, wind direction and proximity with integration spaces (living room, swimming pool and kitchen)


The house has reuse of rainwater, economical construction systems and reused furniture.

RESTAURANT NAMBU

Simple, inspiring and enjoyable.

 

Complete project with branding, graphic design and architecture, transforming Nambu into a unique, creative and captivating brand. Architecture based on experience and sensations, focusing on comfort and tranquility, prioritizing the connection with nature.

 

The place reminds a lovely balcony and serves as an oasis in the middle of the city.

 

For graphic design and interior design choices, we valued Brazilian culture and knowledge and have reviewed the traditions, just like the chef cuisine. We mixed old techniques with current, such as woodcut with digital design and stamping, or braided straw chairs with contemporary design.

 

All this following the concepts of sustainability of valuing artisanal and local works and, whenever possible, using natural, recycled and recyclable materials.
