Architecture of Silence is a collaboration between furniture brand WENTZ and creative agency Blackhaus. The project places the former's products in a serene environment, blurring the lines between reality and imagination.
The campaign is a collaboration between furniture brand WENTZ and creative studio Blackhaus, both from Brazil. The former aims to turn a house into a refuge from urban chaos, by means of its furniture, lighting and home accessories. The latter is a studio specialised in architectural visualisations and digital content for internationally renowned architects and designers. They joined forces to create Architecture of Silence, a minimalist utopia and an ode to contemplation. The joint campaign presents the WENTZ collections in a serene environment, where the boundaries between reality and imagination are distorted. The project represents the ideal architecture in a utopian way. The design brings together the grandeur of a cathedral with the lightness and simplicity of timeless architecture. This results in a space that is both imposing and light. The images show a monochrome and simplistic way of life. The tranquillity of these spaces makes all the outside noise disappear into nothingness.

By playing with light and shadow, the space feels calm. The curved walls, grand columns, arched doorposts and spacious staircases contribute to this feeling. The limited use of colour makes the smallest details stand out, such as the texture on the walls, the speckles in the stone surfaces and the minimal colour differences between furniture, carpets and accessories. The shadows, a combination of natural and artificial light, also seem to have been applied very deliberately. Style and functionality complement each other perfectly here, without either of them having to be sacrificed. Architecture of Silence thus becomes an almost otherworldly space where home and rest merge into one, which is entirely in line with the vision behind WENTZ furniture.
