Oscar Ibirapuera, São Paulo, Brazil

Perkins&Will updates Niemeyer’s modernism with Oscar Ibirapuera, a residential project 5 minutes away from the park.

In August 1954, the city of São Paulo received what would become one of its most celebrated postcards, the Ibirapuera Park. Designed by Oscar Niemeyer, the park, an icon of modern architecture, has established itself as one of the most popular destinations in the city as well as the epicentre of the surrounding neighbourhood’s development.

After 68 years of this landmark’s creation, the global studio Perkins&Will update the architectural parameters of the region with Oscar Ibirapuera, one of the most impressive residential projects in the high-end São Paulo market, with a permanent view of the city’s most exuberant green area. Made for Trisul development, the project offers apartments with 186 sqm, 227 sqm or 233 sqm, with 3 or 4 bedrooms and up to 4 suites.

“The floor plan was conceived so that the living room could count with 9 meters in its front completely devoid of pillars, providing this way a wide panoramic view of Ibirapuera, something unique in the city”, says Douglas Tolaine, design director at Perkins&Will. The common areas have a gourmet party room with double height, outdoor and indoor pools with a 20-meter lane, a solarium, dry and wet saunas, a spa, a fitness room, a pilates room, a playground, a playroom, a game room and a bike rack.

The common area’s interior design is signed by Fernanda Marques, responsible for improving the comfort and fluidity feelings of the spaces. Benedito Abbud’s landscaping stands out for the vertical gardens installed on the facades of the balconies and for the harmonization between tropical species, such as short-stature palm trees, and the native ones, such as the Adam’s rib positioned on the ground floor.

Contemporary modernism

The Oscar Ibirapuera aesthetics is guided by reinterpretations of elements recognized as hallmarks of Brazilian modernism, such as roofs supported only by columns, organic shapes and brise-soleil on the facades. The marquee that winds through the common areas is a direct reference to the magnificence of the Ibirapuera’s Marquise designed by Niemeyer and is located fifteen minutes away walking from the building.

Oscar Ibirapuera also offers a generous walkway fully open on its sides, consolidating a great integration into the environment. Present in the design of the marquee, in the skylights and in the outdoor pool, the organic shapes are equally striking.

The combination of the rounded edges, the sky blue of the coatings and the proximity of the marquee recall the exterior of one of Niemeyer’s masterpieces, the Casa Canoa, protected by the National Heritage Preservation Agency (Iphan). The movable brises-soleils present on the facades and made with beveled wood panels offer a contemporary reinterpretation of this feature widely used in modernism to protect the interiors from the incidence of sunlight, while giving the building liveliness.

The panels reappear on the ground floor as a finishing of the walls, contrasting with a wide white metallic lattice designed with a geometric pattern, and accentuating the rhythm of the passage areas. The accuracy in the creation of spaces, the contemplation of all its details and of the landscape on which it leans allows the project to awaken sensations while instigating permanence.

In this way, Oscar Ibirapuera reconciles the innovation and urbanity that high-end projects demand while inviting to an immersive experience in the largest and most beautiful city’s green area, providing its residents with the necessary serenity to balance the daily tasks. With architectural traditions as its starting point, Oscar Ibirapuera translates contemporaneity to evolve perennial and long-lived, following the same path as the park that surrounds it.
