Oscar Gonzalez Moix has designed the La Planicie House II in the La Molina District, Peru. The home, made mostly of concrete and caramel-colored wood, is spacious, and makes use of a minimalist approach to enhance that feature. The concept of this house was born by very clear requests from customers. The principal were trying to keep and cherish as much green space and use low maintenance materials. It was a very rewarding process that turned into a special feeling called Space and Matter. “The project should contain space for personal desires, atmospheres and sensations they perceived and were incorporated intimately. They did not know how to explain it very well, hence, the communication process was critical to understand that we should treat the open spaces as possible, seduce and provoke a sense of enjoyment for users, where in the open floor, could live with all functions with large garden. The advantage of the climate in Lima, with even temperatures, no rain allowed us to revive the idea of the central courtyard as an articulator of functions; this helped to further the concept.”
