Ícaro combines the benefits of houses and urban apartments in a sustainable three-tower complex in Curitiba, Brazil. The project’s premise is to offer naturally lit and comfortable environments while ensuring the dwellers’ privacy using local and natural materials. Considering how users experience each space, the apartments are like suspended houses, provided by wide openings and a connection to nature. Concrete is chosen for its visual strength, while wood and glass are used to give it an organic and transparent touch. The landscaping, with planters embracing floor after floor, creates a vertical garden in the city.
