Today we are writing to present our awarded project, finalist in the competition for the construction of a housing tower in Lima, Perú, called to become one of the great icons in the city, and done in collaboration with the architecs Elisa Sequeros and Ignacio Senra. The competition, as a negligent organization, has been declared not awarded at the final stage, something included at basis… Regrettably, it seems that still the profession does not have the tools to avoid this acts of vandalism that leave us undefended to people that come sometimes even from our field.
Talking about the project, our proposal consists on a building with a great diversity of uses, understanding that so important is the housing and the common space. This concept is incorporated to the internal private space, exploring the intense relation that an element like this tower can have with urban surroundings. This relation is manifested through great terraces in constant relation with the internal program, becoming the core of the project. From the point of view of the materials, we understood the project as a vertical compilation of horizontal concrete slabs, having perimeter glass surfaces that allow the complete relation with the urban views from every internal space.
Even with the terrible organization, we are proud of it and we hope you like it!
