From the architect. Alvarez Beach House is located on a cliff of Playa Misterio, a gated beach community 117 Km. south of Lima. With vehicular and pedestrian access at approximately 50 meters over sea level, Alvarez Beach House was the answer to specific program requirements given by the client, a successful surgeon with a large family.

The social area of the house was placed near the entry, occupying two levels while accommodations for children and parents were organized in two parts: the two levels above the social area were designated for the boys and their guests and 3 levels below social area for the parents, girls and their guests.
