Biarritz Edifice- Flamengo Beach N°268

One of the major « art deco » buildings in town. The façade stands out with graceful round balconies, showing a double curve; details of the friezes and superb gates. We can notice the Carrare marble, as well as the enormous wrought-iron gate, the sophisticated golden door handle of the entrance door….the detail of refinement. A beautiful and peaceful inside-garden, which is very rare in Rio nowadays.

Planned in 1940 by Henri Paul Pierre SAJOUS and Auguste RENDU
