BRAZIL 2017-2018 Tishman Speyer and Foster + Partners Av. Das Nações Unidas, 12,901 Sao Paulo, Brazil t: +55 11 4933 2571 e: w: Developed by Tishman Speyer and designed by Foster + Partners, AQWA Corporate is an awardwinning office development in Rio de Janeiro, Brazil. Located along the waterfront, the project is part of an extensive land reclamation in the historic part of the city. The 22-storey, twin building development has a phased construction programme and consists of 125,000m² of office space. Retail and public spaces are arranged at the base while parking is provided in a five-level basement with dedicated ramps serving both buildings. The design has carefully considered the hierarchy of public, semipublic, semi-private and private areas in a seamless progression. Access to both buildings is via a central public plaza and each building’s lobby is at the first floor. This serves to leave the ground floor open for public functions. The development has been designed to achieve LEED ASHRAE Gold certification and has currently been pre-certified Gold. Responding to the local tropical climate, an enhanced, self-shading strategy has been established with the building elevations. All the principal open-air public circulation and amenity spaces have also been provided with effective sun and rain protection. Today, AQWA Corporate stands alone as the forward-looking anchor of Rio de Janeiro’s port revitalisation efforts. Its state-of-the-art design creates efficient and ecological spaces for tenant users who will enjoy 360-degree views of Guanabara Bay and Niteroi Bridge, Pao de Acucar Mountain, Cristo Rendentor Statue and the downtown skyline.

PERU MC Diseño y Decoracion was founded 20 years ago by Mari Cooper, one of the most famous interior decorators in Peru; as a parallel project 10 years later she launched two important showrooms in Lima where she exhibits important brands that her firm represents. The company has since become renowned for innovative and contemporary designs, using only the finest and most durable materials. Casa San Isidro is an award-winning interior design project for a private residence by MC. The project called for a two-storey building where the ground floor could accommodate the clients’ extensive art collection. It therefore had to feature ample, wide open spaces flooded with natural light. This level also had to cater for regular social events stemming from the clients’ business activities. The second floor was dedicated to spacious living space for the family as well as private art holdings. The main entrance to the property is light and airy and displays a collection of paintings by Latin American artists. Moving in to the main salon, it becomes apparent how elegant and sophisticated the design is with neutral colours, decorative accents in black and contemporary lines. The stylish wine storage room and bar is a multifunctional space which includes a dining table and entertainment area and open views to adjoining areas. A stunning double height terrace features a grand mural by a Dutch artist and is decorated in a grey colour palette to blend beautifully with the artwork. Presenting a perfect place for al fresco dining it overlooks the outdoor swimming pool. 2017-2018 MC Diseño y Decoración Av.
