ACQUA IGUAZU

INSPIRATION

Located where Brazil and Argentina converge, Iguazu Falls (which in the Guarani language translates to “Big Water”) is the inspiration behind Iguazu Tower. Acqua Iguazu is the fifth tower to rise in the Acqua Private Residences development, and interior designed by the world’s greatest design mind.

MASTERPLAN

Each building speckled with multiple sky gardens and every edifice reflects a sense of fluidity, with their designs replicating the movement of streams that trickle down a mountain side, collecting in a tropical basin that finds its culmination in three iconic waterfalls that seemingly flow into a mighty river.

Interior Design:
YOO BY STARCK

yoo is a collaboration of ideas; the experience of the world’s most celebrated designer, Philippe Starck, matched with the vision of the international property developer John Hitchcox. These two leaders in their field have come together with a single ground breaking concept: to harness the creative diversity of Starck, with the innovative buildings developed by Hitchcox.

The idea is yoo. yoo creates extraordinary places, allowing people to buy functional, brilliantly-designed homes.

With over 50 global projects, yoo brings to life the creative, boundless imaginations of what the home can be into reality. Philippe’s influence on the way we live now is everywhere – in our uses of colour, material and space, and in our desire for good design at every juncture. In 1999, Starck joined forces with John Hitchcox to establish yoo. His collaboration at yoo, yoo inspired by Starck, has seen the successful completion of over 20 projects around the world.

 

Philippe Starck

Philippe Starck is not only the world’s most renowned designer but also a respected visionary.

From the everyday products – furniture and lemon squeezers, to revolutionary mega yachts, hotels that stimulate the senses, phantasmagorical venues and individual wind turbines, he never stops pushing the limits and criteria of contemporary design.

Inventor, creator, architect, designer, artistic director, Philippe Starck is certainly all of the above, but more than anything else he is an honest man directly descended from the great artists of the Renaissance.

AMENITIES

Cielo

yoo inspired by Starck’s design ethos finds its fullest expression in the three levels that crown the tower’s pinnacle: Cielo.

The Wonder Bar And Library

The Wonder Bar is located on the first level of Cielo and will be a favourite area for residents to converge in. Guests are invited to enjoy the light, clean and tranquil space of this unique architectural fusion of an indoor/outdoor library during the day and a glamorous cocktail bar at night. With majestic views of the mighty Pasig River down below and yoo inspired by Starck’s iconic “statement sun” that transforms into the “luminous moon” when darkness falls, The Wonder Bar will be an enchanting place to be anytime of the day or night.

The Dining Area

Cielo’s top floor provides residents with a truly magnificent dining area, which can be booked privately or used communally. The design of this space evokes a minimal yet delicate mood whilst the statement sun/ luminous moon adds a truly iconic character to the space. The reflection of the suspended moon on a textured mirror amplifies the dreamy feel of the deck. Living walls and vertical landscaping are introduced in several parts of the area to resonate Acqua Private Residences’ general theme of bringing a tropical rainforest into the city. And above the dining room is a cut out in the ceiling of one of Starck’s favourite quotes from “Le Petit Prince” revealing itself in the moonlight.

The Movie Room

For the ultimate in decadent home living, the second floor of Cielo will be home to a resident’s movie room. This private home theatre is designed to provide full comfort for the residents. Luxuriously sumptuous, hand selected furnishings create an ideal space to enjoy movies of your choice from an extensive media library provided. The imposing black and white image on the ceiling is yoo inspired by Starck’s way of evoking the old world charm of the black and white films from the golden age of cinema.

The Pool

A grand and awe-inspiring multi-level waterfall drops into the calm and refreshing pool, exclusive to Iguazu’s residents. The design of this space is again minimal to accentuate the resounding presence of the waterfall as well as the signature yoo inspired by Starck poolside lounge – including the designer’s iconic floating chairs seemingly residing on the water’s surface.

The Lobby

A focus for all yoo inspired by Starck’s projects is the skill and process of designing the lobby, and Iguazu’s process was no exception. The long narrow room provided a natural aesthetic in which three frames funnel and exaggerate the length of the room, while providing an interesting focal point to which the eye is drawn. Flowing on is the building’s reception, using as a backdrop a sculptural representation of the moon, echoing that of Cielo’s. Following the same design principle as this sky deck, the ceiling of the lobby also holds a quote from the French book “Le Petit Prince”.

INTERIOR INSPIRATIONS

Minimal

Minimal is ideal for those who want to add their own layers and ideas. It can work as a simple start in deciding how you want to live – an almost blank canvas where you can gradually add objects to reflect your tastes and personality.

Nature

The nature palette is for those who love to live with fresh air, blue sky, the smell of rising sun, purity and simplicity. This style draws its inspiration from the widespread and deeply-rooted desire of city dwellers to bring nature into the urban environment. The colours and materials are drawn from a gentle spectrum of natural hues: pale, sun and sea bleached wood, and sand and pebble-grey mixed with soft green.

Culture

Culture encapsulates yoo’s passion for appropriating the most beautiful and exquisitely produced objects and ideas from the past, and placing them alongside the most amazing designs of today. The result is an intriguing mix with a captivating tension. Rooted in richness and boldness, the Culture palette has a powerful sense of history, but is always looking forward.
