MN/15 Ibirapuera Residential Building by Konigsberger Vannucchi

Home > Winners > #46671


DESIGN DETAILS
DESIGN NAME:
MN/15 Ibirapuera

PRIMARY FUNCTION:
Residential Building

INSPIRATION:
Taking advantage from an unique location in town and being influenced by the surrounding parks, the project incorporates green and vegetation as the essence of the design. With spacious terraces, the apartments will have the feeling of living in a house.

UNIQUE PROPERTIES / PROJECT DESCRIPTION:
The site for the construction of this building in the city of Sao Paulo, Brazil, is a very privileged one: it lays at the edge of a vibrant neighbourhood, facing a vast green area, including the city’s busiest park, the Ibiripauera. Certainly a key aspect for the concept development, this border condition defined two main goals to be achieved by the design: To take advantage from the superb visuals and to extend the green surface, bringing the surrounding green to the footsteps and facades of the apartments, creating an unique living environment. Unevenly shaping the terraces doubled its ceiling heights in all apartments. This created the opportunity for larger vegetation to be incorporated in the design of the facade. The result is a high-end building with sustainable aspects intended to become a landmark in the city.

OPERATION / FLOW / INTERACTION:
The initial volume results from the decision of prioritizing the extension of frontal facade, generating a graciously proportioned building. The double extension of terraces allows both collective and intimate areas of the apartment to enjoy the beautiful views in contact to the exterior. The terraces rotation enhances the views towards the park, clearly establishing a relationship with the green mass. The particular shaping of the terraces provide double ceiling heights in all apartments’ extensions, allowing to place large pieces of vegetation.

PROJECT DURATION AND LOCATION:
This project located in Sao Paulo, Brazil, was initiated by Gafisa in 2013 and involved many different versions and configurations before arriving to a last project that would meet the highest expectations for an unique site in the city. Konigsberger Vannucchi, an architecture firm from Sao Paulo, was responsible for the architectural design. Due to the importance of the use of green in the project, the landscape firm Burle Marx from Rio de Janeiro was also brought on board by the developer.

PRODUCTION / REALIZATION TECHNOLOGY:
Concrete structure with flat, beamless slabs. Aluminium windows with roller shutters integrated in the upper part of the frame for thermal, solar and acoustic insulation. Aluminium Composite Material cladding systems used in the facade.

SPECIFICATIONS / TECHNICAL PROPERTIES:
65,80 metres high Residential Tower with 15 floors plus a pent-house. 16 Apartments ranging from from 334 sq.m to 559 sq.m Ground floor with ballroom, 25 metres inside pool, external pool, solarium, fitness area with squash court, spa and relaxing room. Children room with playground.
