Modern Residence in Lima Originally Adapted To A Steep Hillside Slope
Gómez de la Torre & Guerrero Architects completed a 634 square meter residence in Casuarinas, Lima, Peru. The residence was built on a steep hillside slope, offering perfect city views. This feature defines the project’s structure, as the architects placed the social areas in the lower part, the bedrooms in the middle and the service area, a study room and the entrance lobby on the higher terrain. Concrete and glass were the main materials used to give the exterior a bold personality and to open up the house towards its landscape.
Vertical columns frame the windows inside and out, adding an interesting design element to the project. The interiors seem to revolve around the triple height open living space, with elegant arrangements and generous windows. A large stairway acts as a vertical circulation shaft around which the rest of the rooms are located. as usual, we invite you to go through the photos below and speak your mind about the overall design of this home.
