Text description provided by the architects. Located in the district of Miraflores in Lima, Peru, the project is a building with 7 apartments, with one apartment per level. The rectangular site has an area of ​​560 m2 overlooking one of the characteristic Miraflores urban parks. The project is 1.50 m above street level and setback two meters from the street, this results in a much broader sidewalk, more subtle to the city. 6 apartments approximately 340 m2 and an additional penthouse about 540 m2 are designed.

The lobby area connects to the vertical circulation and a first ground floor apartment. The first apartment has a terrace linked to the park but subtly separated from the public space, addressing relationships between interior and exterior. The terraces of each apartment on the facade toward the park have a gradual inflection that orients the views to the deepest view of the public park.

The concept aims to articulate public living areas in the apartments connected to the park through a circulation core, kitchen and services for the secondary bedrooms and living room. A series of fixed mullions in one of the interior facades allow to blur and address relationships between apartments, generating visual privacy and framing views.

The living room, kitchen and master bedroom are mostly oriented to the park. Each of the apartments went through a process of direct customization with owners from a base typology. In each of the proposals, the two interior courtyards combine the order of living spaces.

The courtyards articulate the main spaces of the apartments, and along with a large green wall in one of the courtyards, provide a particular micro environment inside. The vertical garden 8 levels high, in the manner of a domesticated garden, creates a sense of extension of the public park within the apartments, allowing a constant relationship to the natural environment in circulation and interior areas.
