House in La Encantada, Peru by Javier Artadi

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.
