Luxury LOFTS

Basic idea and initial desire was to merge general Loft Concept with specific site/landscape context and Lima’s climate.
In our interpretation Loft Concept is close to it’s origin-flexible open space and rational structural system. Translated from its original (industrial space) into domestic realm the main spatial implication of the Loft living is that rooms act like a flexible membrane between exterior and interior space.

Given masterplan allowed only 3m gap between buildings. This presented us with another challenge of how to provide enough light into the space while still ensuring privacy between neighbors.

The plan was developed in three different versions.
