Architecture

Wladimir Alves de Souza

Set in a work of Brutalism by Wladimir Alves de Souza—the nationally renowned professor and architect behind the structure that houses Rio’s Chácara do Céu Museum—the villa plays host to a glorious contrast of raw concrete and exotic wood. A panoramic viewing point, a patio with a vaulted concrete pergola, and a six-meter wooden door are among the villa’s structural standout features, as are high white walls and soaring ceilings that combine to create airy and inviting spaces. Integrated artwork, such as a concrete and steel wall by artist Miriam Löllmann, add to this listed building’s architectural awe.

INTERIOR DESIGN

Yorick Piette

Handpicked furniture pieces from the antique markets of Paris, Brussels, Ghent, and Antwerp contrast with midcentury modern works by names such as Nils Jonsson and VB Wilkins. Many bathrooms also feature azulejo mosaics, a style of ceramic tilework that is typical of colonial Portuguese architecture. 

A touch of minimalism, embodied by Jo Hammerbörg’s Scandinavian pendant lights, complements an otherwise elegantly tropical mix of rich woods, dashes of color, and the occasional bold pattern. Furniture by Ricardo Fasanello, whose studio is just down the road from the villa, also adds to the visual identity of the interiors.
