Platonian Tower in Lima, Peru by Tammo Prinz Architects

Wednesday, May 7th, 2014

Article source: Tammo Prinz Architects

URBAN 

The sloped max. envelope was given by Peruan building codes. The program was massive.

Therefore a sunken outside plaza was introduced, connected to an open and public reception space, serving together as possible event space. This way the living function could reach down close to the ground floor, still providing enough privacy through the gap generated by the sunken plaza.
