Casa en Los Andenes in Lima

Design: Aurelio Herrera, Enrique Llatas

Location: Lima, Peru

More Mass not means Less Light

The site of Los Andenes House is located in the south of the city, where the nature of the ground sent the house inside a desert landscape, around dunes and oriented to the horizon. Working in a scene like this, far from the city, make the architects think how we should deal with the position of this new materia inside a virgin landscape.

The bulk stands on a podium of landfill compacted with land contained by stone walls of the zone until you find a level where you have the opportunity to look the environment. And, at the same way, the architects separated the most private area of the first floor of the house and social public in the cover with a surrender landscape.

From these operations, appears a central courtyard which help organize throughout the house and that it will be the place where looking at the sky. Unlike the different environments that are framing different parts of the plot in its orientation North-South-West.

The house closes on his entry into two large white walls, allowing a monumental central door of three meters high, to be open, go through with the look and allows to see the horizon.

This stone is white and are the settings of the landscape, the garb of the people and the light, who will give the color to the space. This stone has been carved by a lot of care and precision, waiting to give with each bore a look of the place not to be understood from the outside.
