Status: Ongoing
Location: Copacabana, Rio de Janeiro

Casa Atlantica is a new residential building on Avenida Atlantica, Copacabana Beach, Rio de Janeiro. The natural forms if Rio’s morrow and beaches generate an elastic, malleable quality within the city’s urban fabric, while the dynamism of Copacabana – within its energy and rhythm – is one of the city’s most important public spaces.

Casa Atlantica‘s design continues the liberating composition and spatial flow inherent within Brazil’s rich Modernist tradition, engaging with the unique tempo and vitality of Copacabana’s urban beach culture, as well as the fluidity of its renowned Burle Marx promenade.

Working within site restrictions governing the height and distance from adjacent buildings, Casa Atlantica‘s design establishes a fluid order defined by its structure which morphs and expand at each level to define generous balconies, and dividing each floor into separate residential units. Facing southeast to Copacabana Beach, the design branches towards its neighboring buildings to establish a continuity with the existing the urban fabric of Avenida Atlantica.

ORUM RESIDENCE BY SPF: ARCHITECTS

Design | January 24, 2022

Perched atop a Bel Air hilltop, Orum is a three-level, 18,800-square-foot home designed to subtly 'float' above its environs. Given its prominent positioning above a relatively developed neighborhood, the motivation behind the design of the home was to create a residence that could meld into its surroundings while maximizing views. The three-story structure, which takes on the shape of a three-winged propeller, is wrapped in glass that mirrors its sweeping views of the Los Angeles Basin, unobstructed from the Getty Center to Long Beach, Century City, and Downtown.
