Occupying a fabulous 7500 square meter lot just 46 kilometers from Lima, Peru, this property rests at the edge of an Eucalyptus forest, with desert mountains and a vision as background. Architect Jaime Ortiz de Zevallos designed a home that actually shields the property with its architecture. According to the architect, “the house was placed at the North East corner of the site near the access to the closest road in order to maximize the use of the land. The buildings work as a screen that conceals the property when you enter. ”
Generous floor-to-ceiling windows flood the double-height living room with natural light while providing a green scape and dynamic panoramas of any football game taking place on the green grass outside. Spreading over 460 square meters, the residence simplistically known as House b2 contrasts its rigid name with an architecture inspired by nature and neutral colors that connect it to the outside. The spacious home rests on a corner of the 7,500 square meter property, creating a beacon of modern design.
Located in Peru’s Pachacamac District, the home photographed by Juan Solano unravels its elegance while interacting with the surrounding landscape. “The program was divided in three parts and two levels to minimize the footprint, the main volume ground floor contains a family room, kitchen, dining room and a double story living room bringing the exterior into the house, the double height living room displaces the second floor children’s bedrooms to the side and generating a cover outdoor patio around an exterior fireplace and wood oven. The second concrete building has been separated by an open walkway to the garden and contains a guest room with a mezzanine and the master bathroom that connects back to the house through the cover glass bridge.”
Two concrete and stone volumes connected by a glass bridge shape elegant residential space influencing the inhabitant’s subconscious. The north, sun-facing facade generates views and ventilation helping the home reach its maximum potential. Social and private spaces both open towards views of green surroundings, creating a permanent connection to nature.
