Boxwood is designing a home in Lima for an international family that has travelled the world. They wanted traditional architecture, a gracious garden and open living spaces. We have attempted to create as much outdoor living space as possible in an environment where security is paramount. All homes are surrounded by 3 meter tall walls and security gates. This design dedicates nearly half the in-city lot to outside space resulting in living space that is shallow and allows light penetration to be at the maximum. Main floor space includes a foyer, kitchen, dining room and large living room. The home has a master suite, den, office and junior suite on the second floor. The third floor has a full apartment, a junior suite, an artist loft and storage. The daylight basement, contains a wine cellar, maid’s quarters and utility areas. Materials are concrete, cement plaster, and tile.
