in lima’s pucusana district, local practice domenack arquitectos has built the ‘poseidon house’, a cubic structure that offers sweeping views of the surrounding mountains and the adjacent pacific coast. the property, which is located at one of the cliff’s highest points, has two natural access points, with residents able to enter the home from both its upper and lowermost levels.

internal living accommodation is spread across a series of staggered storeys, with the home’s master bedroom contained within an elongated white volume that hovers above the remainder of the dwelling. this area of the home overlooks the bay, while remaining open to independent and private patios defined by the rocky terrain.

primary living space is found on the level below, with a large open-plan lounge spilling out onto a secluded poolside patio. further bedrooms for the client’s children are found at the lower level, establishing the central storey as a shared communal area in contrast to more private zones.
