Hotel on Copacabana Beach

Designed by Chad Oppenheim and Arthur Casas, the Emiliano hotel sits on the famed Copacabana beach in Rio de Janeiro. The project fronts one of the most beautiful views in the world while being surrounded on three sides by dilapidated apartment buildings from the 1950s. Through simple yet powerful spatial manipulations, the hotel optimizes its beneficial attributes while subverting its negative forces.
