Text description provided by the architects. This Project involves a single-family townhouse in La Encantada, a suburb on the Lima shoreline. Given its sub-urban nature, the house design is nourished with the purpose of seeking the strongest relationship between the property’s constructed space and its indoor garden.

First Floor Plan
First Floor Plan

For that purpose, a compact space design was thought to contain the program (social area, private area, general service area, etc.) which is intersected by a folded plane. This architectural folding is intended to connect the house’s front garden with the indoor spaces through a spatial round-journey of single and double heights. In this way, the simplicity of the major volume space is altered, but at the same time enriched with spaces, which are connecting it with and freeing it from the green area surrounding it.

The project, placed on a corner, is set within a two-storey volume. The bureau, social area (living-dining room), kitchen and services area are found on the first floor, The stairs, placed in a double-height space, can be seen from the main entrance.

They lead to the second floor where the house’s more private areas are found, including: main bedroom, 3 bedrooms for children and a family room. These spaces are connected to an exit to a terrace with a view to the back garden.
