Home On A Hairpin: Needs More Hazard Lights

Peru’s 2.8x Architects took on a challenge with the Mirador House — how do you build something beautiful when the land you have to work with is an uneven plot situated on a steep bend?

The design they went with is a airy terraced home perfectly positioned into a difficult piece of land just east of Lima. Big bright windows fill the place with natural light. With multiple cascading levels, the roof garden is the cherry on top, boasting a panoramic view of the city and its environs. The only fear is that some reckless driver might smash into the front door. [Contemporist]
