House in Las Casuarinas, Lima Peru
Lima-based architectural practice, Artardi Architects, have designed the House in Las Casuarinas project. This property is located on the side of one of the hills of Las Casuarinas, Lima, Peru.
The land, with a steep slope, is in a privileged position with impressive views of the city of Lima and can be accessed from the upper part and the lower part from a park.
The luxury Lima property includes a complex housing programme that includes typical environments (living room, dining room, bedrooms and so forth) and uncharacteristics such as a gym, sauna and so forth, as well as a mini-apartment on the top floor.
The project solves the task from a conceptual planning viewpoint that organises the programme into three boxes joined together three dimensionally at 90 degrees. The first contains the main vertical circulation, the second, parallel to the street, the bedroom and family room, while the third, perpendicular to the land, contains the main room and projects outwards to the front space of the home. The rest of the program has been arranged into a sort of background wall and other secondary volumes.
From the images you can see that the house is of a volumetric composition that contrasts with the natural topography of the site, an architectural object that is a viewpoint for the capital city.
