The traditional beach town of Punta Hermosa, 45km south from Lima, is the scenery for this summer house, located in a consolidated urban area. The porch, a traditional space in Peruvian coastal houses, is taken as a founding element for the project. The social area is transformed in an outdoor, shaded space, framing views on the Pacific Ocean. This large, contemporary porch is conceived as an interior landscape, which relates with the exterior one so to redefine each other.
