A MODERN, UNIQUE PROJECT OF BOLD ARCHITECTURE, WITH ALL INFRASTRUCTURE AND COMFORT USERS DESERVE.
At this moment of reurbanization of a part of the city, VISTA GUANABARA emerges as an enterprise with all primary characteristics expected from actual constructions: modernity and sustainability. An architectural project that is inserted as a landmark in the landscape of the city, at the heart of Port Maravilha project, pointing to the direction where the city of Rio de Janeiro wishes to rebuild itself and grow. A single tower, with 4 undergrounds, 4 elevated garages, 1 access floor, and 17 office floors.
VISTA GUANABARA is not only a new building that impresses progress and cosmopolitan architecture; it also generates comfort and provides facilities to users. The building was designed to receive corporate environments with sobriety and elegance, providing high quality infrastructure to attract a global audience. Its piece of work incorporates innovative concepts of sustainability, technology and energy resource management. A building that stands out for the high performance of the construction’s comfort and longevity.
With access via digital control, the security of VISTA GUANABARA operates by proximity cards through electronic turnstiles in the elevators hall. A 4.5 m ceiling height at the entrance brings comfort and beauty to the place, besides receiving natural daylight.
There are 8 elevators to access the floors with capacity for 24 people: 4 to the Low Zone (ground floor, 2nd to 10th floor) and 4 to the High Zone (ground floor, 10th to 18th floor), and also 1 service elevator and 3 to the garages (serving from 4th underground to the 4th garage).
Maximum speed to respond elevators’ call in any of the floors destined to offices and to the eight floors destined to parking.
The user informs the terminal the desired floor and the terminal shows the elevator that will transport it. Once in the elevator, the passenger is taken to the desired floor. There is no pushbutton inside, since the destination call is made before entering the elevator.
