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.
