This impressive and yet surprisingly simple residence is a beautiful example of contemporary architecture. The house is called Casa AR and it’s located in San Isidro, a district of the Lima Province in Peru. The location is convenient and so is the surrounding landscape, although the inhabitants of this residence don’t have much contact with the others. As you can see, there’s a tall and massive walls that separates the house from everything else, creating a little private paradise.
The house was a project by Lima-based studio Seinfeld Arquitectos. I wonder if they have anything to do with the famous comedy or the actor, but I’m sure it’ s a common question. Anyway, the residence features a very simple, actually minimalist design, with very few architectural details and an overall elegant look.
The interior design is equally simple but also very chic. Even though I admire the architecture of this house, I have to say that it doesn’t look very cozy or inviting. The interior is rather cold and it resembles an office. Nevertheless, this expansive three-storey residence is an impressive structure. I particularly like how the spaces have been divided.
The ground floor is more live a common entertaining area, with floor-to-ceiling glass walls, while the other two floors are more private. On the ground floor, there are very few walls, thus be can conclude that there’s an expansive open floor plan where the living room, dining room, kitchen and all the other spaces are interconnected.
