IPANEMA – A story of transforming space

IPANEMA – A story of transforming space


The constantly evolving society invariably needs new answers to questions like: How do we want to work? How do we want to live? How do we want to spend our time for recreation? Ipanema – an ensemble of high-quality living, leisure and business – confidently sits in the Jardim de Ipanema. The common garden provides an important social contribution. Ipanema’s recognition value offers the possibility of becoming a landmark in the area of neighbourhood development.
