Vitra, São Paulo, Brazil by Daniel Libeskind

Thursday, February 17th, 2011

Vitra, a multi-faceted, luminous glass tower with a sculptural shape in São Paulo, Brazil, is Daniel Libeskind’s first project in South America. The building will include 14 apartments, one per floor plus a two-floor penthouse- from 565 to 1,145 square meters. The main distinction is that each unit’s floor plan will be unique. Vitra will stand on Horácio Lafer Av., in the Itaim Bibi district, between Salvador Cardoso St. and Lopes Neto St. Near Presidente Juscelino Kubitschek Av. and Brigadeiro Faria Lima Av, one of the city’s main thoroughfares. The site offers quick and easy access to several leisure sites such as the Ibirapuera and Do Povo parks.
