Architect David Bastos exhibited his work on an area of 80 sqm for Casa Cor 2014. The project focused on a functional environment with the concept of receiving, divided into a dining and living area.

Moreover, the rug with the geometric pattern and the chandelier above the dining added charm to the space.
