From the architect. The residential building was developed to harmonize with its surroundings, so we used curves, balconies, and gardens as a way to insert it into the landscape, softening its contours. Located on the northwest slope between Rua Zodíaco and Avenida Terra, in the Santa Lucia district, the site and its surroundings are strictly residential.

The building has an 11.8% occupancy rate and a permeable area of 38.7% with 2752.5 square meters endowed with gardens and open areas. note that the Land use and Occupation Law requires only 20%. All boundaries are free from any type of construction. The building only touches them below ground. Lateral clearances are approximately 20m on the left side and 26m on the right side. The top of the building is below the Praça do sol, which guarantees that the view of the Serra do Curral is preserved.

From a geological point of view, this project is geo-supported because, unlike the dominant practices of our current civilization, all features of the geological environment are explored to benefit it, i.e., all negative side effects are internally compensated wherever possible, and all positive side effects are identified and enhanced.

It's wonderful that this behemoth left Serro do Curral. That said, it's absolutely beautiful

why the photos of this building, all looking at the sky, did not show the neighborhood?
just because it was erected in a low-rise houses area...that are now in the shadow of this terrible building.

There is an elevator for cars in this building that connect every single floor/apartement. do anybody know why they need such an elevetor?
is it just for luxury, security reasons, laziness,.....

Nathaniel Solis · July 31, 2012 05:37 AM

Having an elevator for the cars eliminates the need for a parking garage that would take up much more land. It's space efficient.

All of above, I guess !!!
