Loft Boutique Residential Tower project was submitted to the international competition opened by Arquia for a luxury apartment building that will be developed on a plot across Lima Golf Club.
The randomly colored urban pattern of Lima’s slums and the colonial architecture with wooden balconies have been primary sources of inspiration for the fragmented façade concept that aims at emphasizing the exclusivity of each home.
Considering the continuous interior volume being a typical characteristic of a loft, each residence is imagined as a “corridor” with one end opening to Lima Golf Club and the other to the Pacific Ocean.
The lightwell integrated with the common circulation areas is turned into a vertical street going through houses.
Bare concrete and perforated metal panels, which are the only two façade materials, refer to the industrial character of original lofts converted from factories or storage spaces.
A landscaped garden with a mini golf course is planned on the eastern part of the roof terrace that will visually fuse with the view of Lima Golf Club. An infinity pool is located on the south side so that its surface will unite with the Pacific Ocean on the horizon.
