Situated at the base of the Andes Mountains, the aptly named Los Andes House is a recently completed residential project from Peru based architect Juan Carlos Doblado. The home is a striking modern design, partially embedded into the mountainside at one end and cantilevered outward at the other. The architect integrated a number of key design elements that take advantage of the scenic surroundings while still providing a functional living space. Most notably, nearly all rooms in the house contain floor to ceiling windows or sliding glass doors. This allows constant, unobstructed views of the Andes Mountains, regardless of room. Furthermore, each room provides a unique perspective and view of the landscape. Exterior courtyards complement the sliding glass doors and expand the usable living space. The transition between inside and outside becomes seamless when the expansive glass doors are open, reinforcing the home’s connection to its natural setting.
