In the realm of luxury real estate, a new pinnacle of elegance and architectural innovation is set to rise in Fortaleza, Brazil. Diagonal by Pininfarina, a joint endeavour between the illustrious Italian design firm Pininfarina and the Brazilian construction company Diagonal, represents a blend of world-class design, sustainability, and community spirit.
Pininfarina, a global icon in Italian design and lifestyle, is renowned for creating timeless beauty, exemplified in luxury cars like Ferrari, Maserati, and Rolls-Royce, and in over 1,200 projects spanning automotive, product, user-experience design, architecture, interiors, nautical, aviation, and transportation design. The company, hailed among the top architectural studios worldwide for branded residences, has received numerous national and international awards for its architectural approach that emphasizes quality and the human experience.
The Diagonal by Pininfarina project, marking the beginning of Diagonal’s 40th anniversary, will be the first development in the company’s history to bear its name. This 53-story luxury residence, a new icon on the scenic Fortaleza waterfront, aims to capture the soul and values of the traditional city while incorporating Pininfarina’s signature Italian design influence.
Each of the 47 apartment units is designed with the resident’s well-being in mind, featuring floor-to-ceiling windows, large terraces, and abundant natural light. The unobstructed views create a seamless connection between the interior and the exterior, connecting the living spaces with the surrounding ocean, nature, and sky. The building’s curved façade, inspired by high-end nautical design principles and resembling waves crashing on the shore, is a testament to Pininfarina’s design philosophy that marries elegance and innovation.
The living green façade, tapering upwards from the lush base, offers a rainforest-like oasis at the heart of Fortaleza’s urban fabric, underlining the project’s commitment to urban afforestation and regeneration. This approach to design is part of a larger vision by Pininfarina and its partner, Molegolar, to create a resilient, inclusive, and sustainable development, reimagining the connection between the ocean and the city. Molegolar, a strategic partner of Pininfarina in Brazil, contributes its architectural intelligence technology for space integration and flexibility to the project.
Each full-floor apartment is prefaced by a private elevator lobby, customized to fit each resident’s needs and stylistic tastes. The expansive four-bedroom units include a primary suite and three standard-sized rooms. The private terraces, illuminated by an integrated smart lighting system, offer sweeping views of the ocean, promoting feelings of peace and physical well-being.
Additionally, the development offers residents-only amenity areas, including activities and state-of-the-art facilities that encourage a cross-generational leisure environment. This project, a culmination of Diagonal’s more than four decades of excellence in the Brazilian real estate market, is poised to transform the landscape of Fortaleza city and set new standards for luxury living and architectural innovation.
