Luxury residential complex soon to open in Punta Del Este, Uruguay
Edificio Acqua, a six-story luxury residential complex located in beachfront resort of Punta del Este will be Rafael Vinoly’s first completed building in his home country of Uruguay. The project introduces an unprecedented level of construction quality and architectural refinement to the Uruguayan housing market.
The L-shaped 34-unit structure has a terraced elevation that dramatically steps back floor-by-floor to provide dramatic views and a high level of privacy among the units. The building contains a mix of units including four single floor manor residences, two penthouse apartments, five double height lofts and 24 single floor apartment units.
All units are organized with living and dining spaces typically facing the ocean while bedrooms, bathrooms and other private spaces are situated toward the rear and sides of the building offering views of the surrounding gardens and forests.
A fitness center, spa and outdoor pool complete the project. To be completed this year, the project has garnered the 2007 Real Estate Excellence Award from the Federación Internacional de Profesiones Inmobiliarias-Uruguay (FIABCI-Uruguay)
