The architectural and interior design project signed by Stemmer Rodrigues for two art collectors in Porto Alegre, Rio Grande do Sul (Brazil) was inspired on the acrylic painting Amelie, a work by artist Nelson Wilbert. Adding to the artistic atmosphere, the apartment is in a building from the 1980s and needed an update of its program to meet the couple's new uses and a total rethinking of the finishes and furnishings.

The renovation started with the elimination of the walls that compartmentalized the space and an old, unused fireplace in the center of the living room. The environments gained fluidity, integration, and new uses, such as an specific area for a home office, a 'cocoon window' for reading moments and an environment to accommodate vinyl records, another passion of the clients. Originally with three bedrooms, it was also transformed into two bedroomswith a large closet.
