The creative minds at Metropolis designed a contemporary residence entitled Casa Casuarinas in Santiago de Surco, Lima, Perú. The project has a total area of 560 square meters and is structured on two levels. Sustainable materials such as stone, marble and wood were employed throughout. The bottom level was envisioned as a giant glass box, opening the project towards the backyard and swimming pool area.

The poolside terrace space also features outdoor lighting that can be modulated to meet various social situations. According to the architects,”the second floor was designed as a perforated container, with a higher roof to promote inner sense, unlike the first floor that is reaching out“. The interiors are highly elegant, offering an interesting mix of materials and textures. Through the floor to ceiling windows, the inhabitants can enjoy unobstructed views of the Andes. How would you comment on the overall architecture and design of this contemporary residence?

    Very enterprising design, the windows, glass walls and fixtures, and colour scheme create an excellent “open” atmosphere,

    The lighting is great, and the garden strikes an excellent balance between “expansive space” and “private courtyard”

    Very good photography.
