Urca Penthouse by Arthur Casas

Studio Arthur Casas have recently completed a contemporary penthouse apartment situated in Rio de Janeiro. Urca Penthouse is nestled between Sugarloaf mountain and Guanabara in the neighbourhood of the same name. The design is careful to ensure it is naturally accomodating to it’s environment and the resulting views. The interior is a structure of clean lines and minimalism, with white walls and ceilings, sliding glass doors that spread the width of the living room and large open terrace spaces that all make the most of the apartment’s surrounding environment.

The design, whilst simple, provides warmth through neutral elements such as the wooden trim accents, and clean, sweeping lines are a feature that runs throughout the length of the apartment. The result is a home that embeds itself within its surroundings, making the most of its environment whilst providing a comfortable and inviting inside.

Take a further look at the apartment on the gallery above.
