Architecture showcase from Reinach & Mendonca from Brazil.
From the architect: “Henrique Reinach and Mauricio Mendonça started Reinach Mendonça Arquitetos Associados in 1987. The architecture developed by Henrique and Mauricio always have had, as guidelines, the respect of form, light and comfort. They believe that adequate control between full and empty results in effective use of sunlight, as well as in the correct temperature control. With a contemporary language, great attention is given to circulation and exterior openings, creating pleasurable spaces to see, be and walk through.
During the first 15 years, the firm has managed and built a great deal of its own projects, thus obtaining real mastery on the worksite and in regards to building costs. At the same time, it has designed fixed and loose furniture that complement its architecture.
They won first place in the 1993 Young Architects Prize – IAB/SP in the category “completed buildings” and, in the same year, they were the highlights of the Second São Paulo International Architecture Biennale and International Biennial of Quito. In the years 1996, 2000, 2002, 2003, 2004, 2006 and 2008 they received honorable mention awards from AsBEA (Brazilian Association of Architecture Firms) and IAB/SP (Institute of Architects of Brazil) for their completed buildings.”
