This is a house where Miesian influence, a fascination for Richard Neutra’s Kaufmann House, and typical Peruvian as well as Argentinian country house style, are clearly recognizable. It is made up of a main gallery, a patio, living and social rooms and the bedrooms, all as open, side by side, unconnected spaces. Finally, but at the beginning of everything, is the landscape -on which the house is poised like a butterfly in the fields- and which gives form to and mutually composes with the architecture of the house. The house is made of steel and glass, as well as wide concrete walls reminiscent of tapia mud walls, which counterpoint the house without touching it. Its light roofing gives a frame for the distant mountain and tree views.  The lines created by the house, which resemble planting rows, generate different angled views and landscape vistas from every interior space.  View more View full description
