beach house in las palmeras

peru-based practice artadi arquitectos has completed 'beach house in las palmeras', 
an ocean front vacation home located south of lima city. 

organized into three levels, the residence features a series of living spaces that respond
to and focus on the importance of the surrounding environment. looking to reduce the 
complexity of the architectural form, the structure consists of simple intersecting blocks
that gradually reveal themselves and become more exposed, as they move away from
the beach at ground level.
