artadi arquitectos: house en la encantada

peruvian practice artadi arquitectos have completed the ‘house in la encantada’, in a suburb of lima, peru. the minimalist house is comprised of two intersecting geometric volumes where spaces are stacked and organized in a linear fashion. the main form is represented as a white rectangular box with the private bedrooms upstairs the shared program downstairs. meanwhile the circulation is pulled to the back of the house within the darker-toned ‘L’ shaped structure that wraps around and becomes a veranda along the front facade. both levels are connected by a double-height hallway that runs longitudinally through the plan, creating a vast open interior space that extends out towards the garden.

  • Taylor, I get the feeling that you’ve never seen architectural photography before – this is pretty standard stuff in terms of presentation.

    great piece of work – HURRAY FOR THE TYRANY OF THE PARTI!! (at least as long as it is this eloquent)

    or, in the words of the great Garth…

    “parti on dude”

  • I really couldn’t say with certainty whether these are photographs or renderings. If the former, it was an interesting decision to photograph the house without a single piece of furniture. I understand the desire to show the purity of the forms, but it would also be nice to see some indication of how a person might actually occupy these spaces.

  • I love the lesson of this piece. I mean, what else has modernism taught us, if not the Tyranny of the Parti, and the critical importance of getting it right at the outset, in all regards. The pics and formal diagrams are text book quality, clearly illustrating the importance of “complete” conception. The formal diagram and drawings, in their austerity and materiality, clearly stated that this piece would be devoid of any and all humanity…even extending to the “garden”.
    Would that the architect had taken this idea to its logical conclusion, and remove ALL vestiges of any connection to reality or the material world…to complete his vision of Minimalism.

    Of course, those of us who believe in Stanhal’s “beauty is but the promise of happiness” would be left in the cold, but I don’t believe that would be of concern to Artadi Arquitectos.
