Studio Doblado Arquitectos completed the design for a 2,786 square foot contemporary residence located in La Planicie, Lima, Peru. For a total budget of $150,000, this project has two levels, an impressive swimming pool and a highly modern layout: “The house is built on a longitudinal lot, therefore most spaces have views that avoid the patios.The first level has a living room, dining room, kitchen, guest bathroom, master bedroom, master bathroom and service area. The second level has two bedrooms, lounge and bathrooms.The internal movement allows two independent circuits, by way of a promenade, entering through the garage (owner) or on the terrace (visitor).” House in La Planicie showcases an elegant and functional interior design, with the ability of maximizing the indoor space.
