Studio Arthur Casas perches RS Apartment above Rio de Janeiro's Ipanema beach

Brazilian architecture firm Studio Arthur Casas chose minimal finishes for this holiday apartment on Rio de Janeiro's waterfront to enhance its ocean and mountains views.
RS Apartment is a five-bedroom apartment in the Brazilian city with views of Sugarloaf Mountain on one side, and a vista of the Atlantic Ocean and its dotted barrier islands on another.

It is on Avenida Vieira Souto ? a famed street where some of Brazil's most expensive residences are located.
Săo Paulo architecture firm Studio Arthur Casas designed the property to provide a holiday home for a family that has friends in the city.

Interiors feature a minimal palette that is natural and warm and cool at once, as large slabs of pale Travertine Navona stone tiles cover the floors. Walls and ceilings are painted white, and storage and doors are concealed within the walls for a seamless aesthetic.
Furniture pieces are in cream, pale wood, stone and caramel for a sense of cohesion and lightness. Bedrooms are lined in light oak to offer a natural touch.
RS Apartment has a square-shaped plan that spans 520 square metres. At the core are the entrance and kitchen, with bedrooms arranged in an L-shape around the centre.

Living areas are placed to make the most of view of the surrounding vistas.
"As the entrance is placed in the central portion of the plant, the rooms are distributed in a way to fill the outline, thus being placed on the facade, which offers a privileged sight," Studio Arthur Casas said.
