Interesting to observe from a variety of standpoints, Casa Viva designed by Gómez de la Torre & Guerrero Arquitectos showcases an inspiring design. The architects stated that this beach house in Playa Gaviotas, Canete, Perú “allows natural light to uncover it, showing different shades based on the time of day and according to the position of the sliding enclosures or the large openings”. Sounds appealing?

From afar, the rectangle-shaped residence inspires tightness and does not reveal the true nature of the interiors. Once inside, a potential visitor is likely to feel overwhelmed by the spacious and bright rooms, typical for a holiday escape: “The spaces of the house work jointly or fully independently, according to the needs of the moment, spread over three levels with autonomy and unfolding chronologically according to the needs of different users. It is a house with rooms that revolve around a large central space with sliding closure located on the lower level, where coverage is made out of aluminum and polycarbonate which graduates the level of incidence of the sun and cross-ventilation”.
