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.

Swimming pool and recreational facilities were located at lower levels occupying a series of terraces designed to connect the house with the ocean.

Another N level inspiration: http://t.co/m9gH0fYu The interior is interesting too -- that view of the water is pretty stunning.

I don't mind people having golf-carts as cars, but houses as candyjars isn't my cup of tea. Especially in Peru... Peru, Asia, that is.

I never knew that Peru was in Asia... I will have to re-visit my Geography books

im · July 19, 2011

I like the exterior shape. Colors and materials are not a good choice. Interiors are not friendly.

basil · July 19, 2011

why must i always find something by longhi architects on the front page these days?-i don't even think their work is specially good.

josep · July 19, 2011 03:14 PM

I agree with you! Their work needs lots of editing! But this blog is not about great projects I believe you can learn what not to do from projects like this
