Private Residence, Rio de Janeiro

Rockwell Group won the invited competition for a new residence in Rio de Janeiro. The roughly 1500-square-meter site demanded spacious interiors, a sheltered enclosure from the neighboring high-rise, views of distant mountains, an outdoor pool, underground parking, and guest house. The core structure combines cast concrete, scale-like tile cladding, and wooden finishes.
