The project was submitted to the architectural design competition opened by the firm Spazio + Pissano for the development of eight “loft towers” of two types, one corner, one normal, on a steeply sloping site facing a golf course in Lima.
The tower masses were basically shaped by putting floor volumes of required sizes on top of each other and then modifying them to suit the steep slope, in order to minimize excavation.
Accordingly, in both types of buildings, each loft turned out to have a different layout, namely two duplexes on top and bottom and two single floor lofts in the middle with a semi-open garage on the entrance floor.
A steel structure on top of concrete foundations and retaining walls is proposed, in order to enhance flexibility of planning by minimizing the load bearing components.
Each loft is planned as a unity of three zones, namely the main “loft” consisting of open kitchen, living, dining areas, master bedroom and study with the maximum openness, and the two supporting zones that are secluded, namely the other bedrooms’ area and maid’s, service spaces.
