In its debut in the largest exhibition of architecture, interior design and landscaping of the Americas, CASACOR, the office TRPC Arquitetos, signs two spaces, the “Loft do Colecionador” and the “Cafeteria Coffeetown”. For a cafe, young architects Adalberto Vilela, Cecília Miscow, Tiago Schultz and Vanessa Sampaio worked on a recurring theme in their architectural investigations: the architecture of the house, a combination of volumes and scale, considering a careful setting in the food court of the event. With a simple architectural gesture of extruding the silhouette of a house, the architects designed a cafe that attracts attention at first sight. A “house” was designed with two opaque walls that are used for displaying products sold in the café’s grocery store, and a large glass curtain wall that extends from the walls to the roof, natural light during the day and illuminating the square at night. The volume defined by the walls surrounding the cafeteria is 6m long, 4m wide and 5.30m high, giving 24 m² of floor space.
