Christian BottgerCity:LimaCountry:PeruMore SpecsLess SpecsSave this picture!© Juan SolanoText description provided by the architects. When a young couple came to my office to commission the design and construction of a house where they would live forever, I knew I had in my hands a great opportunity to continue in my search of ancestral contemporary architecture. In that moment, I was ready to dedicate exclusive time to interpret their dreams in order to create a “container of life”.Save this picture!© Juan SolanoMy vision for a special house was confirmed when I went to the site for the first time and realized that it was already occupied by an old house where the couple was living with their two children. Then, the task was to demolish the material but keeping the spirit, in order to replace the old construction for a “House for Ever”Save this picture!PlanThe metaphor for the design was to imagine that a big ancestral rock was foundin the site andneeded to be carved in order to accommodate the living spaces.Save this picture!© Juan SolanoThis “black carved stone”would be occupied by a 4 car garage, service patio, maid’s quarters and pool baths in the basement; kitchen, dining and living spaces in the first floor. The carving of the spaces would generate interesting “built in” furniture with strong texture to be assorted with other natural and artificial materials in order fortheallegorystone to remain as natural as possible to eventually be perceived as part of the owner’s desired garden.Save this picture!© Juan SolanoTo complete the composition, the blackstone base supports four cantilever volumescontaining the intimate rooms,as the“white floating stones “once ambitioned by the client.Save this picture!SectionProject gallerySee allShow lessAn Interview with Magda Mostafa: Pioneer in Autism DesignArticles’London As It Could Be Now’: Reconnecting Londoners with the Tidal ThamesArchitecture News Share A House Forever / Longhi ArchitectsSave this projectSaveA House Forever / Longhi ArchitectsSave this picture!© Juan SolanoHouses•Lima, Peru Year:  2013last_img
