From the Architects:
A Peruvian beach property
Peru is known for its foods and its music as a cultural representation, the attempt by its architecture to be identified, has turn out to be 1 of the most important motivations of our function. This attempt was carried out in a more intuitive than rational way, much more feeling and reacting to our own nature that analyzing or justifying our actions with background or references. This is how we present this property to our customers and this is how we learned the a lot of complexes that we have for recognizing us as Peruvians. In our atmosphere, it is far more hard to consider to provide Peruvian architecture than foreign architecture, complicating the attempt when commisions often arrive with specific orders oblivious to what must be in a suitable context variations. Veronica house was a great opportunity to discover this search of our architecture in a context that is greater connected with the global style. The intervention was noticed as the pleased meeting between the artificial and the natural. The pool of almost 40 meters lengthy and a staircase of many ranges are the architectural landscape elements that allowed integration with the location constantly looking for a stability amongst the all-natural (rock website) and artificial represented by the very same architectural components.
The social area is at the terrace swimming pool level on a raised platform, carved into the hill, it has a glass enclosure that based mostly on a rail method enabling all partitions come together on the north side of the house making integrated spaces residing area, kitchen with terrace and pool. Intimate places are accommodated in a volume of 2 amounts that “floats” above the terrace. This volume generates a great architectural dialogue with the rock side the 2 north and south of the great deal, with a bulk composition that could be interpreted as the geometrization of the nature of the area. The materiality of the home is solved with the balanced use of 5 principal supplies: Cast Stone concrete, with colours derived from organic rock context. Beton and Pulish concrete, applied to certain architectural components, such as an artistic beam that supports the glazing program at the level of the deck, and in some methods of the principal 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 property that feels relaxed in its place resorting to the only thing that can unite a community, their culture.
