A highly modern architecture approach, a generous mix of materials, spacious interiors and extensive ocean views characterize Casa Spa, located in Playa Gaviotas, Canete, Peru. The project was envisioned by Gomez de la Torre & Guerrero Arquitectos as an opulent retreat, where the transition from one covered living zone to the neighboring open space is barely noticeable.
The exterior of the residence reveals the architects’ choice towards simple geometry. Casa Spa is shaped like a giant rectangular white box, with a large terrace and suspended glass bedroom opening up to the rear garden and ocean views beyond. The breezy feeling is taken indoors, where the design of the rooms pay tribute to space, natural lighting and comfort. A water fountain&small pool combo acts as the focal point of the living room, adding up to the fresh feel of the place. Can you spot any detail that you would personally add to your own home decor?
The best architects can create designs which will give clients and the public things they didn’t even realise they wanted, and this is especially important when architects are given the difficult brief of creating structures in much-loved, iconic areas.
Inside the school, a wall made of cross-laminated timber separates classrooms from the main corridor, providing a space for storage and study. With very little to work with, the architects have managed to create a building that is much more than just the sum of all of its parts
