Bright, bold and colourful Casa Seta, Lima, Peru


Peruvian architectural practice, Martín Dulanto Arquitecto, have designed the Casa Seta project. Completed in 2012, the bright and bold property can be found in the capital city of Lima, Peru. 

According to the architects: “This project is part of a personal exploration where different ‘blocks’ and the void generated between them are the main protagonists. The house was conceived as a large white box which was excavated to generate habitable spaces within it.

“The social area is located on the first level and is one large space that completely integrates its diverse use (living/dining/kitchen/terrace) and also integrates itself with the exterior thanks to the fusion between the exterior gardens and a corner of the social area. This corner is column-free because it has a cantilevered structure.

“The bedrooms are also located on the first level; the area where they are located has the ability to become independent and separate of the social area by closing a sliding door.

“The terrace has been designed purely for social reasons: living, dining, BBQ, bar, pool and resting areas. The materials chosen have a rustic quality and vegetation was included in the interior design in order to reinforce the relationship between user and nature.”
