Mar de Luiz Mansion

Overview:  The house is situated near the National Park of Paracas in Peru. It was built with two floors and a total area of 778 square meters. It has a front yard that’s exposed to the strong winds of the coast so the designers created an additional courtyard for the outdoor activities.

The courtyard and the swimming pool divide the mansion into two units. One contains the living area with the terrace, the dining room and the kitchen and the second unit is composed of the guest room, laundry room and the garage. These two zones can act as both separate units and as a whole.

The living and dining area has glass walls on two sides, with views of the sea on one side and views of the rest of the house on the other.

At the other end of the room is a sitting area. A modern white sofa and a daybed complemented by two lounge chairs are organized around a minimalist and robust coffee table. A stylish side table with hairpin legs and a really unique wooden top accompanies the whole arrangement.

From the living area you can see the courtyard and the outdoor sitting area. An L-shaped sectional and a square coffee table sit under a canopy supported by a really cool and sculptural element.
