Casa Atlântica by Zaha Hadid Architects

Casa Atlantica

Casa AtlanticaThe building designed by Iraqi architect Zaha Hadid on Atlantic Avenue in Copacabana  is her first project in Brazil and South America.
Casa AtlanticaThe condominium building includes 30 luxury apartments on eleven floors, a rooftop swimming pool, a cinema and a spa. Zaha Hadid has developed a building, for a height of 41.5 metres, with a skeletal facade where each storey resembles a horizontal vertebra.
Casa Atlantica“I left absolutely free to create,” says the businessman Omar Peres, the project owner. The works begin in March, with the presence of Zaha, who had to modify the original design to meet the urban parameters from the waterfront.
Casa Atlantica“Casa Atlântica’s design continues the liberating formal composition and spatial flow inherent within Brazil’s rich Modernist tradition and engages with the unique tempo and vitality of Copacabana’s urban beach culture, as well as the fluidity of its renowned Burle Marx promenade,” said the studio in a statement.
