Designing a building as the extension of Burle Marx’s Flamengo park is a challenge that demands sensitivity towards the landscape, while at the same time the additional and complex programs of a conventional and commercial center require efficient solutions.
Starting from a well proven, efficient – yet generic – layout, our design transforms itself according to the morphology of the site while retaining its performance and functionality.
The project gives priority to the park and its landscape.
As it rises slowly towards the marina the parks covers the roof surfaces extending itself to the third dimension.
The landscaping itself will be carried out by Burle Marx’ office.
