Standing imperiously on the coast of Punta del Este in Uruguay, Edificio Acqua is a six-story luxury residential complex that looks like a giant staircase that will lead you right into the heart of the Atlantic. The L-shaped building designed by architect Rafael Viñoly is the response of modern architecture to current real estate challenges, and was designed to maximize the available awkward shape and offer a stunning, high-end home at the Atlantic coast. Matching the scenery with plenty of whites and blues, the interiors add to the unconventional, yet exquisite design. [via HomeDesignFind]
