Envisioned by Alan Faena and designed by internationally renowned architects Foster+Partners, Faena House is a vision of true indoor/outdoor living – ingeniously designed and engineered, and meticulously constructed. Breakthrough architectural advances allow panoramic views from ocean to bay with glass walls that open extraordinarily wide to virtually eliminate a division between indoors and out.

We began a conversation and immediately hit upon the nature of indoor/outdoor living. In South America, this lifestyle is anchored around an outdoor terrace called the alero, which quickly became the center point of the project.


We loved the idea of starting each day with a morning walk along the alero to the kitchen for coffee and on to the terrace to read the paper. We seized upon the concept of verandahs in the sky—and clearly took it very literally.

FAENA HOUSE offers one to five bedroom fully finished residences with sleek and impeccably detailed interiors, designed or selected by Foster+Partners.

The Faena House full-floor penthouse features a private outdoor pool and breathtaking 360 degree views.

Foster+Partners collaborated with Molteni Dada on custom kitchens and Permasteelisa on custom bathrooms to create a distinctive and unparalleled design.
