Discipline: Interior Architecture

The strongest identity element in Livraria da Vila bookstores was developed from the book: the extensive shelving covering walls, dividing spaces and even becoming pivoting window displays and entry doors to the shops. In the store located at JK Iguatemi Mall, the fourth project we developed for the chain, the wooden shelving rises to a height of 2.5 m and frees itself from the floor and then the walls to snake in the center of the room, embracing the pillars without concealing them. The amoeba-like design of the shelves creates private nooks for consultations and reading, characteristic of all Livraria da Vila bookstores.
