House 4×30 São Paulo – 18 Oct 2011
Encrusted in a row of narrow geminate houses, the story began more as a challenge rather than as an architectural project.

The showroom of the Decameron furniture store is located on a rented site in the furniture commercial alley in São Paulo.

During a determinate period, in the 90´s, the use of the material declined sharply, restricted to the few architects that used it experimentally and sporadically, without fixing a constructive know-how.
