Las Palmeras House, Lima (PE)
The project defines a very charming work of architecture of great environmental quality consistently embedded in a natural context. The house has been built according to an original alternation of layers including volumes, surfaces and materials and experimenting with unprecedented solutions in residential buildings. The geometrical and monochrome use of ceramic stresses the arrangement of spaces with elegance and precision and plays a leading role in the stage machinery of the terrace, framing the horizon on the sea: the seamless porcelain stoneware floor marks the boundary supporting this spectacular view on the maritime landscape.
