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