Designed by Guilherme Torres, this Project RLHouse is a 1,560 square feet contemporary apartment located in Curitiba, Brazil. The owners wanted to transform the traditional look of their old home into something more modern and lively.

An important point is: all the main pieces such as tables, sideboards and sofa are designed by the architect”.
