Since this is an architecture studio, dom arquitectura wanted to implement details inspired by the tools they use. The color palette has graphite relating to the color of the pencils, and the prevailing white color relating to the paper and drafting boards. Grey horizontal lines resembling pencil strokes run on walls and help in bringing some uniformity to an irregular space. The lines are continuous on the bottom part of the wall picking up the color of the pavement outside, and become more random, breaking apart upward as the wall with the ceiling.




Lighting fixtures, built from sections of iron, are flowing freely through space through convergent and divergent lines, covered with several sheets of folded parchment paper that evokes printed architecture plans. The result is an enlightened paper path animating the ceiling roof.

Along the peripheral wall, each member of the studio gets his own workspace with a table and low shelving. This layout creates a convergence point at the center of the space, where the meeting area is implemented.

The final design touch happens inside the bathroom, where the walls, painted in dark grey invert color scheme of the main space, while green Carlsberg bottles are used as lampshades, a tribute to the Campari lamp by Ingo Maurer.
