Designed with locally sourced stone and red-tinted cement, this coastal retreat effortlessly blends into its surrounding landscape.

Located 31 miles north of Lima, the C3 House is set in a windswept Ancón landscape that the architects describe as "martian-like."

Perched on a cliff between the Peruvian desert and the Pacific Ocean, the C3 House is the work of architects Sandra Barclay and Jean Pierre Crousse. Their Lima–based studio, Barclay & Crousse, tapped into local craftsmanship and materials to create a sculptural home that takes full advantage of dramatic ocean views without detracting from the landscape.

“Avoiding an objectual relationship with context, the house is conceived as a soil extrusion rather than an object in landscape,” note the architects.



The living room and dining area occupy the heart of the "living" volume and are enclosed on both sides by full-height glazing.

Commissioned by a couple with grown children, the C3 House serves as a holiday retreat with four bedrooms and plenty of space for entertaining. The 5,887-square-foot dwelling is split into four staggered volumes, each separated by function.
