Inspiration Behind Muraba, the first residential building designed by Pritzker 2017 laureates RCR Arquitecte
RCR’s ability of including nature in architecture and designing spaces that always convey a sense of serenity is what pushed us to work with them to realize Muraba Residences. Given our unique location, we wanted the sea and the light to be integral part of the building. RCR studied a way to orient the view of all the apartments towards the Ocean, and created a system of glass slits that direct the light into the rooms all they long, while protecting the privacy of individuals. The building’s façade, futuristic yet organic, came as a consequence, as the primal focus was to create residential spaces that felt good, timeless and desirable for those who were going to inhabit them, as Muraba Residences is an artwork for living.
