Jean Nouvel Unveils Design for Hotel and Residential Tower in São Paulo

Jean Nouvel has unveiled the design of his latest project: a 22-story tower located near Avenida Paulista inSão Paulo. The skyscraper, dubbed Rosewood Tower, is part of Cidade Matarazzo, a 27,000-square-meter site containing historic buildings that once made up the Filomena Matarazzo maternity hospital. A heritage-listed site, the Allard Group is restoring the buildings and creating a cultural center, of which Nouvel’s new tower will be a central component.

Set to contain a hotel as well as residential units, Nouvel’s tower is designed to be a vertical continuation of the local landscape. Thus, the nearly 100-meter-tall tower develops at different levels, forming terraces and large gardens with small and medium-sized trees.

The hotel and residential complex will have 151 guest rooms and 122 residential suites, two restaurants, a bar and a “caviar lounge,” in addition to three pools, a spa and a fitness area.

“Matarazzo Park is a remnant. More than a remnant, I would say it’s an oasis. It’s a space of calm urbanisation. A space of incredible trees: figs and magnolias. The hospital in the middle of the grounds is a sort of mini-town, very well organised around patios. Surrounding this little gem is a chaotic metropolis. What is most interesting for me is being able to work with the memory of the place,” said Jean Nouvel in a press release.
