1. Vértice Arquitectos – Beach house E-3

Vértice Arquitectos - Beach house E-3The project develops on an irregular shaped terrain inside a difficult area, but with a privileged view to the sea in the lot E-3 from “Palillos” beach, at the south of Lima. Taking advantage of the lot slope, the project is propose as a volume set worked with different materials and textures in three levels that work together as a unit, obtaining several space relations between the interior and the outside.

2. Elías Rizo Arquitectos – Casa La Punta

IMG_6033_4_5-640x426Located in Punta Mita, in the Riviera Nayarit area of Mexico’s Pacific Coast, the project is a beach retreat for an unconventional couple.

4. Rolf Ockert Design – Bronte House

ROD-bronte-House-10The client approached us to create house of their dreams on a site perched high over the Pacific Ocean, a home that was to make them feel like being on holiday every day. While the view was fantastic the site was very small and suffocated by overbearing neighbouring dwellings. The finished house, though, feels generous and as if it is alone with the ocean and the sky.  Being tightly restricted by site conditions there were only two avenues we could take to create generosity of space and location:  Firstly the surprising height of the living room space that takes advantage of the only extravagant spatial dimension available to us.

9. Seijo Peon Arquitectos y Asociados – OB Houses

Conjunto-OB_15-640x426The clients, a couple with four daughters, wished to have a beach house for all of them, in a 23 meter beach-front lot. Their original idea was to have a seafront main house and three adjoining bungalows in the back, so in this approach, only the main house would have frontal views to the ocean, and the bungalows wouldn’t. This is especially important taking in regard that even if today no next-door neighbors have built their beach houses, it could happen in any time in the near future. [Read more]
