House in La Encantada - Minimalist asymmetrical house built for the life of one family townhouse in La Encantada (Lima, Peru) on the draft local architectural studio Artadi Arquitecto.
It is located on the Pacific coast, on the banks of the River Rimac, at the foot of the Andes. The climate in this region is tropical, temperate – not extreme heat and extreme cold, high humidity and low rainfall. Natural vegetation is represented mainly by rare shrubs and cacti. The conceptual architecture of the house is not traditional, but develops a strong visual connection with the same “laconic” natural landscape areas.
A white stucco, rough concrete, glass, outdoor lighting system and the pure geometry shapes form a perfect Union, which leaves a “leading part” the sky, sunlight or moonlight, the green grass and trees surrounding the villa.
Expressive and compact architecture of the building became the context for a general living room, kitchen, dining room, private suites, toilets and technical premises. Thanks to the sound of spatial geometry, all these functional areas of overlap and interact with each other.
A two-storey volume gives the first level for the social area, and the second of three children’s rooms and master bedroom. These apartments are connected by terraces, which have their own separate entrance. Terrace, in turn, allows the occupants enjoy the tropical garden, located outside the home. Open daylight to the space of the first level is reliably protected from prying eyes impenetrable fence.
