Opulent Residence Built Around a Central Courtyard in Peru: La Planicie House
Boasting a total surface of 905 square meters, La Planicie House developed by Oscar GonzalezMoix in La Molina District, Peru is a modern indoor-outdoor interplay of living areas. The brief of the owners requested a building that offered a maximum connectivity with the environment, which determined the existence of a large central courtyard. Moreover, each of the interiors making up this massive U-shaped residence comes with great views of distant hills.
Here is more on the inner structure of the residence: “On one side of the field lies a longitudinal volume that contains the double-height main entrance, kitchen, living room and main circulation. This object acts as a backbone and connect the programs. Three faces define the courtyard; one of her is the backbone, the other two are projecting higher specific volumes. Between the two volumes, the yard articulates the winter living room and summer dining (barbecue / grill)”. How would you comment on the structure and layout of this family home in Peru?
