Casa Frade is a project designed by Schuchovski Arquitetura. The residence, located in a large plot with a privileged view facing the canal was chosen by the family who wanted a quiet and comfortable place to rest and also to receive friends and family. The house already had a very characteristic history and architecture, originally designed by architect Gabriel Matravolgyi. Once acquired by the family, some changes in the layout and openings were suggested by Schuchovski Arquitetura, for greater integration between spaces, in order to better attend the needs of the new owners, while still maintaining the original essence of the house design, respecting the preexisting architecture.
