A plot with three different levels and a simple structural set were the architectural starting point and the logic that this brutalist house was built. There are three blocks, levels and sectors;
As in previous interventions, and following them, the character and language of the existing building was preserved, for being an integral part of a period industrial complex, still showing a strong symbolic content alive in the city but which extends to the region.
Escinter works with corporate solutions in furniture, partitions, acoustics and technology for the architecture market. The Superlimão project for its new store, in Vila Madalena, brought a concept that sought to explore and reveal the diversity of the brand’s products.
Hugo is a good friend of the studio and the creator of our logo. When he moved to a new house, he asked us to transform a cold and out-of-date apartment in a cosy home. With a short budget available, our option was to spend the money in doing surgical improvements in the layout, to substitute the pavement and to draw fixed contemporary furniture elements.

An anonymous warehouse, an old recycling complex located in the industrial neighborhood in Barreiro, was selected as the new headquarters of the artist Alexandre Farto a.k.a Vhils, and his team.

The OTRO BAR Cambuí project was born from the owners’ desire to create a unique space in the heart of the city, where the brand’s identity was reflected in all aspects of the environment. The final result is the result of a complete renovation in an old house with three floors that, given the dynamics of the original space, the great potential was perceived. The continuous environment is divided between the floors, allowing for a design that brings together different activities that flow in an integrated way in the space.
