An expressive architecture piercing through the air atop a large rock – eye-candy for contemporary design lovers. With a cold name accentuating the futuristic feel, the Beach House Las Lomas I-05 is located in Playa Las Lomas del Mar, 75 miles south of Lima, Peru. Spreading over 2,580 square feet, the volumetric floor plan focuses on the surrounding panoramic views. Lima-based studio Vértice Arquitectos made sure the beaches remained part of the views from the house placed 48 meters high above the sea level.
In order to make most of the site, cantilevering areas became observation decks:
“The volumes are joined by a main circulation axis which ends in a swimming pool overlooking the beach. […] The first volume is found to the left of the entrance of the house, where most of the bedrooms have been located. The master room and the adjoining terrace are revolved 45° as to have the view of the sea. The second volume, to the right, locates the social and service areas in the first level. A family room and a guest room are located in the second level. A two-story living and dining room area ends in the swimming pool and in a terrace perpendicular to it.”
With fabulous views, spacious entertaining rooms and private spaces for resting, the home boasts a beautiful material palette: exposed concrete, white painting in the walls, stainless steel, tempered glass and granite stone – an architectural masterpiece adorning the shores.
