The 700m2 penthouse designed by architect Arthur Casas is located in Urca, a wealthy neighborhood in Rio de Janeiro, Brazil. The clean cut and restrained detailing coupled with vintage furnishings gives the apartment a faithful balance between being minimal and homely. The interior carefully combines glass and off white finishes, with wooden built in pieces like the library bookshelves, planters, seating and the counters. The apartment also affords breathtaking seafront views and to the Pão de Açúcar in the distance.
