The intervention of the structure required reinterpretation of architectural features, reworking on the house layout and considering the pre-existing references. It incorporates the housing concept of a short stay in a space that is functional and caters to the purpose.

The interior of Graça 117 is done in white that imparts a vibe of subtlety and calmness to the indoors and creates a soothing environment. The decor and elements used gives a minimalistic look to the space. The furnishing is a combination of blacks and grays that contrasts with the white backdrop. The large windows bring in ample natural light that keeps the space lit and comforting.
