Casa CyD
Los Condores - first prize
The project is a 470 m² summer home in the Los Cóndores Country Club of Chaclacayo, north of Lima. The site measures approximately 2500 m², presenting an irregular geometry and steep inclines, the most dramatic of which is a land depression rife with obsolete cisterns. To best reintegrate the unoccupied area of the lot –its main asset– we pushed the house up against the adjacent hill's steepest front in order consolidate the spaces before and below its line of vision. Using a very strong symmetry, the house’s shape consists of two V-shaped wings that adjust to the terrain’s perimeter, maximizing the flat garden area in the front.
