The Space

Designed by Vassia Tolstoi, and built in 2010, this house has gained notoriety because of it´s astonishing views as well as for its sharp ambience and good spirited neighbors.

Located at Arvrão, in Rio ´s favela do Vidigal, front to the ocean and in between Leblon and São Conrado, this comunity embodies many of the changes in Rio de Janeiro. Being at the same time one of the most cosmopolitan and grassroots examples of how Brazil is integrating within itself and with the world. With easy mobility access and its beautiful location compared to other areas of Rio, Vidigal has become the cultural hotspot of the city´s Arpoador, Ipanema, Leblon and Lagoa region.

The landlord has turned the house into a setting of constant arts, actvism and churrasco (na lage) fun activities. Having host from social movements meetings to private parties. This house has become a must see for those interested in beauty, society and joy in the city.

The placee has hosted many friendly churrascos with great music, food and caipirinhas. Always welcoming the Vidigal crew and habitues such as Seu Jorge, Vik Muniz, Isay Weinfeld, Monica Belluci, Vincent Cassel, Will Smith, Terrence Howard and Kanye West. With its varied set of friends the house became first informally known in many differentt circles.

Once at Vidigal, you can choose to take the cab up, grab the local vans or jump into a moto-taxi all the way up to Arvrão. Once there, go down the stairs for less then a minute and you are in for a place friends have called from the best bohemian house in Rio to its most beautiful studio. Always agreeing in one thing, it has for us friends of it, the best view in the world.
