From architect. Pachamanca is an ancient Peruvian technique of preparing beneath the floor with stones and types. It's a spiritual offering of value to mother nature (in quechua language, pacha implies 'earth' and manca means 'pot')

© Cristobal Palma / Estudio PalmaA few asked us to design a residence for all of them -professional chefs- and their particular daughters.

The website is on a terrace of a slope, overlooking the city of Lima as well as the Pacific Ocean. We had been asked by our clients to create the absolute most respectful residence in neighborhood with luxuries being conceptual rather than product.

Lima’s absolute insufficient rain (not as much as 8mm per year!) determines an arid landscape where green seems only when liquid is brought from 100km away in the Andes mountains.

In place of a building, we made a decision to start the task by generating an exuberant green landscape. Buildings tend to age and get uglier while vegetation grows and improves eventually.

Manipulating your website we generated a mountain, a valley, a plateau, a cliff, a cave, a ravine, a shore…then each corresponded to specific vegetation course while switching height: woods, grasses, veggies, dangling flowers, xerophilous, hydrophytes…

When defined the new landscape, it absolutely was populated using residence system: dormitories, bathrooms, cooking area, dining, lifestyle, office at home, storage… carefully pairing the spatial and viewing qualities obtained for their functional demands.

The home –as an exuberant landscape- purposely does not have a hierarchical structure, having multiple entrances, amounts and routes, while continuously blurring interior and outside allowed because of the mildness of Lima’s climate (never ever colder than 14ºC or hotter than 28ºC).

The home –as an exuberant landscape- purposely shows a rich variety of finishes and designs: different slices of local stone, many types of recycled timber, tangible imprints, etc.

Baroque and Povera at exactly the same time, like a Pachamanca.
