The architect used sliding glass Windows that follow the trend of the door, which brought to the environment greater integration with the dining room and outdoor area, giving a sensation of amplitude.
According to Emmília, the only interference necessary in addition to the external lighting were installed leds punctually in unique locations on the ceiling, with the purpose of highlighting objects and furniture decoration, like the coffee table and bookcase, exclusive design by architect.

The kitchen remodeled by architect Sylvia Ferraro won, in addition to the expanded window, a glass door, taking advantage of the light and the beautiful view of the external area. With a view like this, it doesn’t feel like the House is located within the town. The peaceful atmosphere is completed with imbuia wood furnishings, granite sink and tropical blossoms in the center of the lacquer table with glass top.
In search of solutions to enhance the natural light in the design of a restaurant, the entrepreneur Matheus, owner of Primovidros Sen, designed doors and large Windows that take up an entire wall. The environment, which has low lighting and dark furniture, won with external lighting vitality. The landscape outside, composed by trees and a swimming pool, also becomes inviting and is attractive for those who are sitting inside.
