The area that has 210 square meters has spacious and open spaces where its different sections coexist in perfect harmony. The apartment has no clearly defined functional corridors or separations; all of the facilities are arranged around the large bright room.

The two unified apartments became a generous social space that houses all the family activities. The rooms and the kitchen were organized around this space in a relaxed layout, without clear corridors or functional separations.

Located on a hill in the famous city, the house is decorated with traditional objects of Brazilian design and allows a relaxing view of the sea and the surrounding area.

The wooden shelves and the collection that brings together classical and modern pieces of Brazilian design create a familiar and cozy atmosphere.
