Clay house (Casa en Azpitia) is a single family house completed in 2015 by Rafael Freyre Arquitectura.

The house is located in Azpitia valley, in the coast of Lima, Peru, approximately 90 Km south of the city of Lima and 20 km away from the Pacific coast. The landscape is characterized by the dryness of the desert that contrasts with green areas along the course of the river Mala. The project was intended to integrate the house with such dry landscape and to develop a geometry and a palette of textures and colors according to this environment.

Tired Victorian House Becomes Ultra-Stylish Family Home

This tired Victorian house was given a complete re-design with new addition completing the vision. Although the house uses fully automated technology, it’s disguised by a warm, textural palette. A timber ribbon of floor and wall travels through the house creating a harmonious, seamless transition from old to new.
