A Peruvian Beach House
Some architects conceive their projects as an adventure, a territory to explore, something stimulating. Impossible for them to imagine a house with a single driving idea, form or texture. This has precisely been the case of American architecture firm Longhi Architects when designing the Veronica Beach House in Lima, Peru. They achieve mixing opposing geometrical forms, or even texture, hesitating between white and round lines, or dark grey and strong straight blocks, finding balance between smooth modern walls and rough untouched stone. The result is an astonishing house, bursting with creativity and baroque that might be hard to deal with on the long term, but that will definitely not leave you insensible.
