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.
