What you see in the pictures below is a single 130 sq m room, part of an abandoned building that used to be a hotel. The interior design is courtesy of Gisele Taranto who created it especially for Casa Cor Rio 2012, the biggest event for national architecture in Rio de Janeiro. Gisele chose to leave the floor and the walls as they were, and added just a few details where necessary. He created a ‘book wall’ where books were used as bricks. The color scheme features neutral tones matching the old look of the building. Numerous pieces of art complete the interior. Amazing job was done with the ceiling, too. A new polycarbonate structure was attached below the existing ceiling, yet allowing a partial view of its authentic condition. The light solutions are quite unusual as well. Electric bulbs are placed in nets hanging from the ceiling.
What do you think about this reconstruction?
