Casa Azpitia Mala (Peru)
Set in a wild, natural setting, the house strikes a balanced relationship with its surroundings, establishing a domestic feel with environmentally friendly qualities. The continuity between the outside and inside areas of the flooring is underlined not only by the uniformity of the ceramic surface, but also by the unique solution adopted for the large glass windows, which are positioned at floor level. The colour scheme and surface finishes are specifically chosen to interact harmoniously with the other natural materials used, as well as the surrounding landscape.
