973 AJAP

Hughes Umbanhowar Architects as Architects

973 AJAP anticipates current and future site conditions--adjacent buildings, sun and wind patterns as well as views and privacy. These elements are articulated in both the street and rear facades of the building. The Avenida Juan Antonio Pezet Street side apartment floors undulate in and out to resist being a singular mass, create shade and balcony space. The first floor has a minimal footprint and raised ceilings that keep the mass of the building light next to the street. The rear facade inner courtyard is filtered with predominant breezes and morning light. Core structure/services and living spaces are placed central to the site, based on a simple concrete slab and column system. The design aims to counter the monolithic, lot filling developments that are too frequently seen along the streets of Lima as the city becomes more dense with building mass. This structure is a complex, 3-dimensional, sparkling geometry that shines on the edge of a grassy opening.
