From the Architects:
A Peruvian seashore house
Peru is acknowledged for its meals and its music as a cultural representation, the attempt by its architecture to be known, has turn out to be one particular of the most crucial motivations of our perform. This attempt was performed in a more intuitive than rational way, a lot more feeling and reacting to our very own nature that analyzing or justifying our actions with historical past or references. This is how we current this property to our clientele and this is how we discovered the several complexes that we have for recognizing us as Peruvians. In our surroundings, it is a lot more challenging to attempt to offer you Peruvian architecture than foreign architecture, complicating the attempt when commisions usually arrive with distinct orders oblivious to what need to be in a suitable context variations. Veronica residence was a fantastic opportunity to discover this search of our architecture in a context that is greater related with the international design. The intervention was seen as the content meeting in between the artificial and the all-natural. The pool of almost forty meters long and a staircase of numerous levels are the architectural landscape components that allowed integration with the place usually in search of a balance in between the normal (rock website) and artificial represented by the identical architectural components.
The social location is at the terrace swimming pool degree on a raised platform, carved into the hill, it has a glass enclosure that based mostly on a rail method permitting all partitions come together on the north side of the house creating integrated spaces residing area, kitchen with terrace and pool. Intimate areas are accommodated in a volume of 2 amounts that “floats” over the terrace. This volume generates a good architectural dialogue with the rock side both north and south of the lot, with a bulk composition that could be interpreted as the geometrization of the nature of the location. The materiality of the home is solved with the balanced use of 5 primary components: Cast Stone concrete, with colours derived from natural rock context. Beton and Pulish concrete, utilized to specific architectural aspects, this kind of as an artistic beam that supports the glazing technique at the level of the deck, and in some methods of the primary staircase, window frames and doors. Shihuahuaco wooden balconies and elevated terraces, walls and ceilings painted white and “volumes” of glass. In conclusion it was attempted a home that feels cozy in its location resorting to the only thing that can unite a neighborhood, their culture.
