DOIS IRMÃOS APT
This penthouse in front of Ipanema beach is in a special situation, in a corner clear, without apparent neighbors, like she’s designed the front of the other buildings, overlooking the sea with a 360 degree view to the Arpoador rock, Morro Dois Irmãos and Lagoa Rodrigo de Freitas. The client, a father with a pre-teen son, let us open all the apartment areas at the most, turning into a huge veranda, including interior and exterior.
The apartment is like a glass box. The landscape invades the living room/veranda and is even more prized by the materials used, the floor only in rough granite sand tone, the tissues in neutral tones and blues and the works of art that were chosen intentionally to each space. Joinery panels hide all doors and make a soft transition from the social to the intimate and service areas. The 4 released decks that glide over the swimming pool line may form different environments, transforming and extending the living room and the family room when desired.
The veranda fully integrated to the inner part can be closed through metallic blinds and retractable awning protecting the afternoon sun and allow full permeability and protection. The vertical garden accompanies the pool and joins the intimate and social area forming a tropical green corridor. The intimate part is more protected and stays inside the block, accommodating the father and son suites, kitchen and dependencies.
