Completed in 2002, the house realized by architect Javier Artadi is an impressive building that offer to its inhabitants spectacular views of the Lima city. Javier Artadi chose a privileged position on the side of one of the hills of Las Casuarinas. The house has a complex housing program that includes typical environments (living room, dining room, bedrooms, etc.) and uncharacteristic (gym, sauna, etc.), as well as a mini-apartment on the top floor. The project solves the task from a conceptual planning viewpoint that organizes the program into three boxes joined together three dimensionally at 90 degrees. The first contains the main vertical circulation, the second, parallel to the street, the bedroom and family room, while the third, perpendicular to the land, contains the main room and projects outwards to the front space of the home. The rest of the program has been arranged into a sort of background wall and other secondary volumes.
