House in Las Palmeras

House in Las Palmeras, Peru, Lima, Javier Artadi
Construction year: 2011
Address: Panamericana Sur | LIMA | Peru
Latitude/Longitude: -12.96684, -76.50657

House in Las Palmeras, located in Las Palmeras beach, seventy-five miles south of Lima, is built on land in front of an earth and sandhill and parallel to the coastline.

The project organizes the program into three levels: the first contains all the service areas, garages, and guest bedrooms, the second contains the main bedrooms and the third boasts the social areas (kitchen, living room, terrace, and pool).

The proposal seeks to minimize the architectural forms that group together the entire visual focus in the top volume, a tray that seems to float above the rest of the house.

In this operation, the first floor has been covered with stone, leaving the second level mostly glass and aluminum as a connection between the base and tray suspended on the top floor.

Given its strategic location, the house offers a beautiful view of the seascape of the Pacific Ocean.
