Step inside and one finds an entirely different picture with exposed wooden surfaces and plywood sheets shaping a getaway that is inviting warm and elegant. Public spaces of this fabulous retreat sit on the lower levels with the top floors containing the bedrooms.
But that is not where the many eco-friendly traits of this house end. Every little element has been carefully put in place to enhance its overall ‘green quotient’ and absolutely nothing is random or coincidental. Large glass windows and sliding glass doors bring in plenty of natural light along with cleverly placed skylights even as the open lower-level living area charms with its cool sunken living room. With a dining area and kitchen that are equally relaxing and yet unassuming you have an interior where less is definitely more.
Contemporary homes are all about simplicity of form frugality and a certain minimalism that is reflected by the use of simple geometric shapes and clean straight lines. The form of a ‘cube’ is undoubtedly the most popular in this regard and in Lima Peru is one such residence where uncomplicated modern design holds sway. Nestled in a neighborhood filled with homes from the 1950s and overlooking a public park this outstanding family house is shaped and defined by a sense of individuality and privacy.
The living area is highlighted by the beautiful blue sectional on one side and a contemporary fireplace on the other with built-in seating next to it. Flowing into the dining area and the adjacent kitchen the entire interior seems like one large social zone where each space melts into the next in an effortless fashion.
With a stylish dining space and a fabulous modern coastal-style kitchen the living area is both easy on the eyes and practical in design. An outdoor deck and hangout extend the living room with the smart bedrooms and bathrooms also embracing the coastal charm.
