Residential House by Gisele Taranto

Tempo House Residential House by Gisele Taranto This Project is a complete refurbishment of a colonial style house in one of the most charming neighbourhoods in Rio de Janeiro. Set on an extraordinary site, full of exotic trees and plants (original landscape plan by the famous landscape architect Burle Marx), the main goal was to integrate the exterior garden with the interior spaces by opening big windows and doors. The decoration has important Italian and Brazilian brands, and its concept is to have it as a canvas so that the customer (an art collector) can display his favourite pieces.

Brise House Residential House by Gisele Taranto This project consists in a renovation of a house located in Rio de Janeiro, Brazil. Set on a lively area, the noise control was one of the challenges, which in the end, had influence in the final look of the architecture itself. Movable shutters were integrated to the main facade, working as noise filters, but at the same time letting natural light into the space. The decoration focused on quality and elegance, rather then trends or styles. Almost all of the furniture used are signed by Brazilian and Italian designers.

Loft Tropical Sensory showroom by Gisele Taranto This loft is divided into two areas: social and intimate. A reflecting pool lined with a green wall, connect the areas and contribute to lower the temperature and promote environmental comfort. A partition in transparent glass is what separates the bathroom / spa room from the bedroom. Holes were created in the drywall. The iron structure is covered with a mesh of opaque and translucent tiles that allow the use of natural light. Beneath this roof was created a recess with irregular plans and a mesh of bamboo and tissue. In this project, it’s as if the scenery outside is being brought inside.

Lab LZ by GT Sensory showroom by Gisele Taranto The intent of this Lab is to get people out of their comfort zone and spur them to think about solutions and thoughts in different areas that influence or will influence the way to inhabit and live. The environment Lab, although fully integrated, presents an area sectorization: a first area of consulting, a second area, living/lounge, and a third area, meeting/working. The Lab has a suspended glass floor and mirror shards in the empty space between the existing subfloor and finished floor. The significance of the mirror comes to complement the concept of this work: depth and reflection.
