Designed by 2.8x Architects, the Mirador House sits on a steep, uneven lot in Lima, Peru. Though many would be intimidated by the shape of the lot, the architects and client saw it as a welcomed challenge.
The structure consists of two main components that are stacked on top of one another. The first is a living area made predominately of glass and metal and provides stunning views of the city, while the second area is made of stone and concrete to provide the residents with privacy. The concrete component also blends into the hill making the glass section appear to be floating out from the rock.
