Sculptural Coastal Desert Vacation House Accessed Via Top Floor
Developed in the coastal desert of Lima, 95 kilometers from the city, a modern summer house overlooking a the sea and a green golf course from a slightly sloping site stands tall among its neighboring constructions, hiding its vast nature behind a curtain wall. Bearing a name rather dull, House Playa El Golf H4, the 4,251 square feet vacation home is a brainchild of RRMR Arquitectos. Constructed on three down-reaching levels, the sculptural home benefits from lateral views to the sea and welcomes owners and guests with a white painted fluidity of spaces starting with the top floor.
“As a starting point, stands a large, comfortable terrace ending in a longitudinal swimming pool, which represents the main living space. On both sides of the plot, green areas may be found, which allow for natural illumination on the lower levels. These green areas define a lighter upper volume, which when separated from the base, takes the stage as the central element of the composition. This volume was given a starring role by working it in a closed way and by giving it a light, clearly defined aesthetic. The sun sets towards the back of the lot, which is used in the solution to provide the necessary shade to the deck by extending the volume’s upper edge, making it more distinctive and dynamic. The suspended main volume then shows a notorious diagonal that may be seen front the deck and from outside the plot. This resulting diagonal is taken as a composition gesture that is repeated as an inclined plane in the entrance, in the two stairways and in the irregular openings in the side facade.” There is a splendid collection of spaces shaping an outstanding architecture: living room, kitchen dining room, family room, terrace, five bedrooms, swimming pool, two car garage, storage area, laundry area and service bedroom and bathroom.
