T+L Reports: Spin Me Right Round
Published: May 2009
In Curitiba, Brazil, 529 miles from São Paulo, the innovative engineers at Moro Construction have unveiled the world's first revolving apartment complex, Suite Vollard (177 Rua Elvira Rarkot; 55-41/3013-1234; www.moro.com.br; apartments from $300,000). The name of the building is derived from Picasso's Vollard Suite print series, and its 11 full-floor units individually rotate 360 degrees every hour. Each of the 2,900-square-foot lofts is faced with glass panels, lightly tinted in four shades to give residents sweeping city views in subtly changing hues. Who said you had to give up your rose-colored glasses?
