lima-based artadi arquitectos have finished the ‘house in las arenas’, a private beach-side residence 100 miles south of lima, peru. the conceptual diagram consists of a hollowed rectangular box lifted off the ground and oriented towards the sea, bisected by a diagonal interior partition. strategic voids have been added to the outer planes to mediate the amount of light entering the residence and funnel views towards the sky and sea. the clean geometric design also offers a simplicity in material and tone, with white surfaces dominating the external components. internal sand-beige hues, the wooden walkways and darker granite tiles lining the foundation and furniture pieces subtly contrast the bright shell.

programmatically, the master bedroom and kitchen find themselves as central elements in the residence, visually connected to the semi-outdoor living area/pool/terrace space. the rest of the service functions can be found concentrically around the main volume, with two smaller sleeping quarters within a semi-basement level. circulation is in the open air, existing in the patio and entrance vestibule, as well as the periphery of the house itself. the regional climate allows the user to inhabit with the dwelling primarily as an external experience.

  • It look to me a very expensive project, dificult to live in, no security, no privacy, just another architect from the moon.

  • I just see another project from the bunch, any proposal or innovation? Maybe the unique white edges that seems to apear in every ‘new’ project or design all over the world.. I’m sorry but i just don’t see why this was published
