Text description provided by the architects. Tandem Residential Complex is located in Lima, Peru; in a traditional middle class district of the city. Its construction was completed in March of the year 2018.

In the last 15 years the Peruvian economy has had a sustained growth in all its sectors, due to the increase of price of all the commodities that the country exports and other factors. This improvement in the economy has favored the real estate market in all the cities of the country. Hundreds of thousands of Peruvians have been able to access a home of their own.

Since 2015, with a much more mature and competitive real estate market, projects have required a greater level of differentiation and specialization. Only good projects achieve good economic results. It is in this context that the Tandem Project was developed.

In this project we propose 2 strategies of innovation in architectural design in order to develop a complex that can compete successfully in the extensive real estate market: 1) Innovation in the design of the departments, and 2) Innovation in the final aspect of the whole. To achieve this goal, the use of brick as a finished finish was fundamental, since it gives warmth and scale to a massive housing project.

The project proposes an architecture without formal pretensions or refinements: clean volumes, courtyards and double-height atriums, sober and durable finishes, such as exposed brick and exposed concrete, simple metallic carpentry details but with design, floor textures that refer to the urban path and a continuous bank that invites conversation.
