Text description provided by the architects. The project is located on a lot with a single front on Bonaire Street, within the Club Las Palmas, south of Lima. The commission consists of designing a seasonal beach house for the client and his family, taking advantage of the terrain so that it could accommodate sub-families comfortably, including children and guests.

The solution is simple and emphasizes functionality, maximizing space without sacrificing lighting or ventilation. The house has 6 bedrooms with natural light, which enters through a large central courtyard that concentrates the circulation core. The design and housing concept also aims to maximize the social and meeting areas, which function as intermediate spaces between the inside and the outside, creating filter elements between different functions of the house.

The entrance is emphasized by a lintel flown which frames the common roofed area: Living Room, Kitchen and Guests Restroom. The lattices of concrete and wood are used as filters providing different levels of privacy to the house from the street.

The front block works as a prelude to enter both the private area of ​​the bedrooms and the terrace area on the second level. On the terrace area, the block towards the front, the open living room and the main dining room get the views close to the street facade. On the back block, the pool area and barbeque sit on a more private location over the terrace, getting views of the sea and surroundings.

The distribution of social areas allows a large family, having different groups and meeting simultaneously, because the spaces function semi-independently. However, the terrace, as is characteristic of this beach houses becomes the social atmosphere of the house, connecting the two blocks through a bridge at the same level and allows one to appreciate the scenery.
