This Project involves a single-family townhouse at 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.
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 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, its leads to the second floor where the house’s more private areas are found; that is, 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.
