Vertical House

Vertical House

Project Description

Located at the front of the Lima bay, Vertical House is integrated into the complex and irregular terrain of reduced dimensions that forced the creation of a vertical volume that takes advantage of the privileged sea views. The limited space – a plot of 105 square metres – required a vertical development that is divided into four levels. The house has a first floor dedicated to service, the second has been developed into a social area, the third houses the master bedroom and on the fourth there are the bedrooms for children.

The house plays with transparencies and generates dynamism, with a relationship between transparency and opacity that depends on the landscape. It is built upwards, opening the social and private areas of the house towards the Pacific Ocean.
