With a total floor plan measuring 520 square meters, this apartment is massive. But size isn’t even its most notable attribute. That would have to be the aesthetic of the place which is minimalist and very sophisticated. The RS apartment is located in Rio de Janeiro, Brazil and was designed by Studio Arthur Casas. It obviously has an extensive floor plan and also a rather unusual layout. The entrance is placed within the central section of the apartment, with the rest of the spaces being scattered around the perimeter. This strategy is practical while at the same time emphasizing the magnificent panoramas. The apartment has 360 degree views of Ipanema Beach.
