The research that we began during the 80s led us to discover the original projects in the Municipal Archives. They served as a base to determine the work necessary for the restoration of the façades.
The prospecting of external walls and casings, flooring, glass panes and ornaments under the guidance of the restorer reveal their retained beauty and original colors.
A record has been kept for each building with photographs, original plans, special stylistic characteristics, mapping of the damages, gaps and chromatic project.
Below is an example of a building on 187/193 Maciel Pinheiro street .
