Article source: Ivan Rezende Arquitetura

Refurbishing project of Kotobuki Restaurant, a traditional Japanese Restaurant in Rio de Janeiro (one of the first Japanese restaurants), which had an outdated architectural line, very much below the quality of the products offered. The tables and the linings were obsolete and they didn’t create the cozy atmosphere that it would like.

Tuesday, October 21st, 2014

Article source: Girimun Architects

As part of a package of investments for the 2016 Olympic Games in Rio de Janeiro, the regeneration of 85 hectares of land near the old docks will create more than 1 million sqm of apartments, hotels, office buildings and a convention centre. The project addresses two moments: the completion of support facilities for the 2016 Olympic Games (10,600-room accommodation for media and referees, a media-centre and 3 to 5-star hotels) and its transformation post-Games into a vibrant mixed-use extension of the city centre. A green loop circuit of public spaces embraces the whole master plan encouraging pedestrian and bicycle use by linking the various dissociated sites and connecting the whole area to the nearby waterfront of the revitalized docks.

Carioca Wave in Rio de Janeiro, Brazil by Nir Sivan Architects Associates

Tuesday, July 29th, 2014

Article source: Nir Sivan Architects Associates

When I got the opportunity to work in Rio de Janeiro the “the marvelous city”, I was thrilled, I knew that whatever I design it has to be and behave as a part of this wonderful place.

I started working on the master plan in my office in Rome, but it’s when I came to Rio that the actual shape was defined. The inspiration came while seating on one of the many famous beaches with a local cold drink. I remember drawing in my sketch book simple 5, 6 lines, but they captured it all.
