Lima-based practice Longhi Architects has completed the Lefevre Beach House Project in 2008.
The 5,700 square-foot contemporary beach house is located on Misterio Beach, 72 miles (117 kilometers) south of Lima, Peru.
Lefevre Beach House by Longhi Architects:
“Between sand and water:
Conceived as the place where the arid Peruvian desert meets the Pacific Ocean, this beach house located at Punta Misterio 117 km. south of Lima, is an intervention where the integration of architecture and landscape was an important concern.
Sand garden roofs act as the extension of the desert; lap and recreation pools connect the ocean with the house, while a glass box hangs from the structure symbolizing architecture between sand and water.”
