"Since 2000, Triptyque Architecture explores the tools serving the contemporary and sustainable world. Simultaneously in Brazil, a country full of energy that has been calling the attention worldwide, and in the Old Continent, birthplace of several principles of the contemporary culture, Triptyque benefits from both cultures. Triptyque conceives a type of architecture that integrates its surroundings to a cultural and poetical sense, interacting with art, sociology and semantics."
Nestled in São Paulo's bustling Vila Madalena neighbourhood in Brazil, the slim silhouette of AIR Madalena soars skyward from the street below. The elegant tower will be home to six lofts varying from 100 to 140 square metres, each with an open-air terrace and ample windows to maximize the panoramic views of São Paulo. Designed and built by São Paulo and Paris-based firm Triptyque and realized by the firm's high-end real estate wing IV, the slender building is promised to be completed within 24 months.
