Sao Paulo, with its multitude of skyscrapers, is a thriving megalopolis, an urban jungle with constant traffic jams and highways that cross each other above the hills. Sao Paulo might appear hostile at first glance, but in reality, it’s a city bustling with life, a must stop for businessmen as well as a center of art and culture.
Founded in 1554 by the Jesuits, it has become the fourth largest metropolis in the world and the economic heart of Brazil and Latin America. This fascinating and gigantic city is home to the largest Japanese population outside of Japan, three million people of Italian descent, and large Jewish, Syrian and Lebanese communities.
This disparate city with its unbridled urbanism, contains architectural treasures from every era. This heterogeneous mixture, which to some might seem like total anarchy, gives Sao Paulo its originality and uniqueness.
This trend setting city combines historic architectural masterpieces like the Pàtio do Colégio with ultra modern structures like the Museum of Art (MASP) and the incredible works of Oscar Neimeyer such as the Copan and Ibirapuera Park.
Perched atop one of Sao Paulo’s numerous hills facing an immense park, the Hotel Unique is truly worthy of its name. This creation by the celebrated architect, Ruy Ohtake, looks like a strange shipwrecked boat, a large inverted arch supported by concrete columns with round porthole like windows and a façade covered with three different shades of copper plate. It contains 95 luxurious rooms of which ten are suites which gracefully follow the curve of the building, offering guests a breathtaking panoramic view of the city and the IbirapueraPark!
The interior was entrusted to designer Joao Armentano who travelled around the world looking for objects to create this avant garde atmosphere which combines great technical prowess with natural elements. The wood floors highlight the white contemporary furniture. The spacious, ultra design bathrooms are visible behind opaque and transparent sliding partitions.
We enter the hotel through the glass hall whose ultra modern carpets and armchairs set the tone in a trendy musical atmosphere. In this veritable urban work of art, three bright, fluorescent neon lit contemporary elevators provide access to the upper floors. The Sky restaurant on the top floor, offers original cuisine which blends the best of French, Brazilian, Italian and Japanese gastronomy under the direction of French chef, Emmanuel Bassoleil. And to prolong the evening, in a state of weightlessness above the city, the Skye Bar is the place to go and mingle with Sao Paulo’s wealthy young people alongside the stunning scarlet red swimming pool.
Architect Paul Goldberger considers the building to be one of the seven wonders of the modern world.
