The bold, sculptural design features a multi-faceted glass façade articulated by inlaid balconies that form a rhythmic pattern across the façade. “The inspiration for the project is the city of São Paulo and the Brazilian people. I designed this tower to expresses the optimism, vibrant culture and dynamic possibilities of a truly pluralist people,” said architect Daniel Libeskind.

The pairing of concrete and warm wood is echoed throughout the building’s clean, modern interiors. Interior designer Dado Castello Branco outfitted the interiors with artworks such as “Ultramar Intervalo” by famed Rio de Janeiro artist José Bechara. The building’s amenities include a swimming pool, spa, gym, multipurpose lounge and a playroom for children.

“Vitra is a new concept in condominium residences. With its sculptured, crystalline form, it creates a new icon for the city of São Paulo”, affirms Paulo Oliveira, president of JHSF’s Incorporation business unit.

The sustainable solutions employed in Vitra include a system for rainwater collection and reuse, solar panels for heating water, the use of sustainable materials that reduce the energy consumption caused by air conditioning and elevators, energy-efficient low emissivity glass which impedes thermal transmission, intelligent building management systems and the efficient management of rubble generated during construction.
