Oceanfront Penthouse In Building Designed By Oscar Niemeyer Overlooks Ipanema Beach

Light-Filled Aerie On Three Levels In Rio De Janeiro Infused With The Master Architect’s Signature Modernist Style

Rio de Janeiro, Brazil – A rare treasure on storied Vieira Souto Avenue, the penthouse in the Oscar Niemeyer-designed building melds sophistication and casual elegance. Appointed with artistic finishes such Ornare cupboards, marble floors and woodwork from Clamom, the residence most commanding asset is the uninterrupted and sprawling views up and down Ipanema Beach.

The penthouse is being offered by Judice & Araujo Imóveis, with international marketing by Christie’s International Real Estate.

“Niemeyer’s sweeping curves and swirling forms defined his style and revolutionized modernism by making the genre more spirited and less harsh,” says Rick Moeser, Executive Director of Christie’s International Real Estate. Indeed, upon Niemeyer’s passing in 2012 at the age of 104, Vanity Fair noted that he transformed the rigors of European modernism, creating designs as smooth and as sensuous as Brazilian jazz.

That this penthouse masterpiece, imbued with that same Brazilian mood, is located on another Brazilian icon, Ipanema Beach, is all the more meaningful.

“The penthouse is without question a true work of real estate art in terms of both architecture and location,” says Frederico Judice Araujo of Judice & Araujo Imóveis. “Situated in one of the most prestigious luxury enclaves of Rio de Janeiro, the penthouse is in one of the few residential buildings conceived by Oscar Niemeyer and fully renovated by the internationally acclaimed designed firm of Studio Arthur Casas.”

The first floor encompasses the main living areas, including a gourmet kitchen, wine display, TV room, and fitness area. The sprawling terrace is appointed with a pool and perfectly showcases the commanding ocean views and the iconic rock formation Morro Dois Irmãos.

The second floor has five bedrooms, all with en suite baths, one being the master suite with two walk-in closets and two bathrooms. This sanctuary also boasts amazing ocean view, steam sauna, massage area, a whirlpool bath and another terrace. The third level is reserved for staff with five bedrooms, two bathrooms and a living room. Twenty-four-hour concierge service and four parking spaces complete this one-of-a-kind residence.
