Casa Urca is a three-storey penthouse apartment located between the Sugarloaf Mountain and Guanabara Bay in the Urca neighbourhood of Rio de Janeiro, Brazil.
This modernist penthouse designed by Studio Arthur Casas was guided by two complementary ideas: to create a pathway of discovery of the landscape on both sides, the bay and the mountain, and to bring as much light as possible to the three floors.
Brazilian designer Luiz Fernando Grabowsky created this cozy loft for the Casa Cor exhibition in Rio de Janeiro. Industrial style elements such as high ceilings with exposed brick walls and wood floors are balanced by a warm colour scheme and whimsical decor which provide the apartment with a cozy atmosphere.
