Room 3201 is located on the top (32nd) floor of Sao Paulo's Icon, Edificio Copan, designed by Oscar Niemeyer. It offers an unforgettable and continuously changing view over the Brazilian Metropolis.
The space is small: about 28sqm in total.
I bought it in 2011 in pretty much original, but desolate condition. It was then renovated and converted for its new use, increasing the size of the bathroom and bringing natural light in, while preserving all the original features, details and materials - sometimes reinventing their use.
The interior is very minimal, but it has everything a typical hotel room would offer including wifi, kettle and mini bar.
There is no kitchen (!!!), but there is an abundance of excellent options for eating out in all price ranges in the immediate surrounding. There is a 1.8x2m double bed with a good mattress. There is also a bookshelf with a specially selected collection of books, which is still growing and there is a small desk with stool built from the left overs of the original parquet.
I have installed two hinged 1.5mx3m mirrors left and right of the window. When closed, they keep the room dark and cool, when open, they magnify the view of the city.
As I am constantly improving the room, I appreciate any feedback and suggestions from my guests.
Interação com os hóspedes
I am in London or Berlin most of the time. I can be contacted by telephone and email.
Locally you will be looked after by Fernanda, who will greet arriving guests, hand over keys, register you with the building security and can answer queries and also provide local information.
As a precondition of you staying at the Edificio Copan, I will need a scan/photo of the photo page in your Passport or RG (Brazilians), which I need to send to the building administration latest 1 working day ahead of your stay. This is a precautionary safety/security measure so that the porter can identify you.
Please respect your neighbors.
Quiet behavior in the public areas of the building is essential.
While I do my best to provide the room in a safe and clean condition, the use of the apartment is entirely at your own risk. I cannot accept any liability for injury or damages as a result of the use of the space or any of its features or equipment.
