Casa Carioca is a renovation project that has made it possible to transform the interior spaces of a house located in Rome in the Eur-Torrino district. The residence was designed for a family who loves travel and especially the Rio culture. The interior spaces have been designed to be fluid, dynamic and at the same time able to organize the space by means of containment structures.
One of these is represented by a multifunctional piece of furniture designed to be the fulcrum of the house and at the same time, a system that, through two passages, disengages the other rooms of the house. The living area is essentially divided into three areas: the entrance, the dining room and a convivial area furnished with a comfortable sofa and a pair of neo-colonial style armchairs.
Color is the inspiring reason for this intervention which also suggested the choice of furnishings whose shapes refer to the symbolic- metaphysical architecture of Niemeyer architecture and the constructivist eclecticism of Roberto Burle Marx, great masters of Brazilian architecture.
Therefore, tables and accessories in colored concrete follow one another, grit floors that reflect the sinuosity of the Rio de Janeiro Promenade and objects that evoke the warmth and cultural richness typical of Latin American cultures. The outdoor spaces, on the other hand, were conceived as an extension of the house where comfort, functions and rich vegetation find their place.
The use of outdoor environments is structured to be lived in order to benefit as long as possible from contact with the biological component of natural elements and with sunlight, essential elements for human well-being.
