Lodging in Ipanema beach, Rio de Janeiro, composed of 2 apartments located in different floors without direct connection.
This apartment, on the lower floor, has the facilities which complement those of the 14th floor, qualifying it more as a permanent dwelling than as an apart-hotel.
There is a laundry, a storage room and a closet very important for those who live between the two hemispheres and their climatic differences.
The apartment has a frontal and lateral view of its large integrated space, with a large format TV, dining table and / or work, cupboard, shelves, cabinets and retractable beds to accommodate occasional guests.
The bathroom is compact but comfortable and full. The balcony is not so wide, but enjoys the same view as that of the 14th floor. It represents the most intimate and informal area of the dwelling.
