This project was to build a beach house perched on a hill overlooking a beautiful horseshoe-shaped beach 125km south of Lima. The slope of the hill dictated that the house be divided over two levels with the front door opening into the living area, main bedroom and terrace on the upper floor and a staircase leading down to more bedrooms on the lower level. Because of the stunning location, the owners emphasised in the brief that they wanted an ocean view from every room in the house. In keeping with this idea, an infinity pool was built next to the terrace on the upper level to visually connect the water with the horizon beyond.
