From the architect. The urban landscape of São Paulo is heavily influenced by two main characters that coexist independently and simultaneously. On one hand, the vertical constructions – most of them faithful to the modernist/rationalist models –, which evolve randomly with the inconstant guidelines of the urban planning. On the other hand, the historical and/or informal occupation of two or three floors of the residual spaces between these constructions.

The ensemble is characterized by spectacular scale and height limits breaks, resulting in a chaotic and discontinuous urban landscape. Located in the heart of a middle class neighborhood undergoing constant change, the project – a standard housing tower – is precisely put in this context, and situated on the margins of one of these permanent breaks, revealing a split panoramic skyline.

This proposal is nourished by the formal and textual complexity of the site, and reformulates the traditional “paulista” residence model. The fragmentation of the building’s body into three parts is made for a better integration of the recreational area and the vertical / horizontal circulation spaces. A small square in the frontal area is given back to the urban space.

The housing units are stacked according to a non-linear and non-modular variation of typologies and windows, giving the building its main look, marked by the use of simple and urban materials.. The design of the homes / apartments follows these principles:

Individual access by external gateway. One apartment/home in each floor, emphasizing the 360 degrees view / ventilation A remarkable architectural element per apartment (double volumes, patio terrace, duplex / penthouse garden). Different windows in each unit. Free plan allowing different internal partitions – modular hydraulic and electrical plugs distribution.

For the current housing market in Sao Paulo, I see this project and others for the developer idea! Zarvos with a hope to "neo-classical" around the city.
For anyone who doen't know the other projects of the developer, I suggest a visit to the site.

Black facade in a tropical country? Smart move...

Sao Paulo's in the South, far away from the equator line that crosses the country. The entire state has a milder climate in result.

Great project! The Brazilian market of housing is hard, bad architecture and bad design is a pattern. This design clash the ideia arround the market and bring a new thinking to a ridiculous market in São Paulo.

uncreative and boring
there are way better projects finished in Sao Paulo then this one
and ... how am i going to hang a lamp in those
apto. from the ceiling ???
its going to look nasty if you change the positition

Jakov · January 17, 2011

nice, with clever cutting of costs. but what will happen when they build on neighbouring lots? speculative building trap - you buy an apartment with a view, but only for a year, after that - neighbour's window two metres away.

Ben · July 18, 2012 06:53 PM

I live just 2 blocks from this building, and can confirm that the land to the side of 727 has recently been sold to a developer who is now building an 8 storey apartment block that will totally block the view for all the apartments that are located in the rear half of the building...not much the residents/ moradores can do about that now.
