RPII Residence

GRBX Arquitetos (Gustavo Arbex) as Architects

The design of this functional residence, which emphasized visual connection between living areas, features grand clean modern lines.


The integration of most rooms with the living/entertaining areas, enabled the use of ample glazed doors and window openings over large spans; all framed by spectacular surrounding scenery.


The search for materials that promoted contrasting balance and yet, defined each element in its totality, has driven the architectural finishes palette.


This design fostered large spans and slender beams, which created a structural challenge, given the unrefined capability at the work site. Lengthy meetings with the structural engineer eventually provided the most cost effective solution.


Despite accommodating all mechanical services in dedicated plant rooms, the building facades remained uncompromised, giving prominence to high ceilings and cross ventilation into living areas via automated high-level windows.


The use of skylights permitted efficient natural lighting and ventilation to the ensuites, walk-in robes and bedrooms circulation areas.
