Borges 3647 Building Rio de Janeiro

The Borges 3647 Building, an architectural project developed by Cité Arquitetura, adopted as premises the valorization of the views of Rio de Janeiro (Brazil) – from some points it´s possible to see ‘Christ the Redeemer’ – and the integration with the remarkable landscape of Rodrigo de Freitas Lagoon, one of the most loved places for contemplation and exercise in the city.

The building mimics the landscape, and when you get close, the details are rich. The design fits, seen from the inside, with the delicacy of this project, which integrates powerfully from the details. As it has a lot of glass, it makes the lagoon very close to the ‘living’.

In search of quality views, besides the solution of implantation in the exact direction of ‘Christ the Redeemer’, the project sought large spans, in visual approximation with the surrounding landscape, also composed by generous canopies of the street trees, elements used to integrate in an elegant way with the surroundings. Still in relation to the dialogue with the outside, the building seeks through its details to interpret the Lagoon Skyline, taking advantage of the full and empty spaces to frame views, as large pictures of everyday life. The use of discreet materials stands out: besides glass, a first layer that forms the façade is composed of concrete and perforated metallic plates, while a second layer, that of the balconies, is composed of wood profiles in asymmetrical and varied designs.

Exposed concrete was used in all the beams, cemented that somehow ends up making the texture that looks like a fine roughcast. The aluminum railing with a woody finish and the pearly gray of the frames forms a backdrop for everything, giving it cohesion. The cut of the railing makes the special detail, with the path of the lines going through all the façade until the volumetric matrix and details that finish it.

The Borges 3647 residential building has six floors and is composed of two apartments in each floor type, one with three and the other with two bedrooms. In the plans, the positioning of bathrooms and kitchens was thought in a way to guarantee the greatest number of variations possible, meeting the needs of transforming the house to the resident’s taste and needs. The units on the second floor have private gardens, due to the configuration of the access floor, while the units on the sixth floor have rooftop terraces with panoramic views.

This new project, as well as Buildings Carmela Dutra e Lygia Reisen, in Rio de Janeiro, is part of Cité Design 360, where Cité Arquitetura office actively participates in all project stages, from feasibility studies to the creation of the enterprise’s name, its publicity material and executive project.

Cité Arquitetura is an 9-year-old company that experienced an exponential growth. In its first year, it was already working with more than 20 developers in Brazil. Founded by architects Celso Rayol and Fernando Costa, Cité Arquitetura values organization and method in the creation of projects and relies on a multidisciplinary technical team, prepared to design in different scales and programs. These attributes guarantee a quality control and more synergy in the meeting of the works with the city. Moreover, we believe that the projects that brought us awards are fruits of our understanding that designing is not a monologue, but part of a wider dialogue with the city.
