BRAZIL 2017-2018 Renato Rossi Arquitetura Ilhabela, SP 11630-000, Brazil t: +55 11 99419 2640 e: w: Renato Rossi Arquitetura is a leading Brazilian architectural practice. The company’s awardwinning property Casa Mar is located on the Ilhabela archipelago in the state of Sao Paulo. Designed to be open to the landscape, the home’s basic aim is to show great respect for its beautiful surroundings. Its concept has been inspired by the contrast and blend of tones seen in traditional Brazilian Colonial architecture. Clearly dividing the building into different blocks which are clearly defined by their usage, Casa Mar’s varying planes and angles add to its optimal insulation and natural ventilation. A central and imposing area of concrete hosts the outdoor leisure and alfresco dining area. It also serves to separate the social and intimate areas into two other distinct volumes, one at each end. The social area features a balcony with decking covered by a pergola for internal shading and appears to ‘float’ on the mountainside. At the other end, the intimate area of the property has been coated with massive clay bricks to help moderate internal temperature. It contains four bedroom suites, one of which is the master located above the others. All suites have access to decks and a large garden. With Casa Mar, Renato Rossi has created a stunning property with an internal environment that literally projects itself out into the landscape and offers fabulous views of both the mountain and the ocean.

PANAMA Based in Panama, PODA Arquitectos has more than 15 years of collective experience in the field of design and construction, with an international presence in seven different countries. The office is committed to producing high quality performative architecture. The company takes pride in using advanced design processes to challenge the way in which the built environment is generated. Its award-winning project ‘Yacht House’ is ideally located on a state-of-the-art, artificial island surrounded by a marina. Ocean Reef comprises two of the first residential man-made islands in Latin America. An exclusive community interconnected by a bridge, it will contain just 138 waterfront residential lots with views of the Gulf of Panama and the city’s skyline. Yacht House was for PODA a challenge to create an elegant, avant-garde and unique residential building to redefine the meaning of modern luxury living. Comprising four residential units with one per floor, the building’s rooftop has minimum covered spaces in order to maximise the views. The design evolved through many stages, eventually taking its inspiration from a superyacht. This was not solely in the morphology but also through the process involved in the building’s design, in which form and aesthetics intrinsically respond to the performance and environment itself. The building’s elegant, double-curved metal façade is made by an advanced cladding system. This will create a distinctive and unique architectural identity that resembles the hull of a superyacht, while also helping to maximise shadows, privacy and security. 2017-2018 PODA Arquitectos PH Prime Time Tower, Costa del Este, Avenida La Rotonda, Panama t: +507 202 7942 e: w: BEST ARCHITECTURE MULTIPLE RESIDENCE PANAMA Yacht House by PODA Arquitectos International Property Awards 71
