The client, a passionate car collector, asked us to design a villa in Lima Peru, in which the residence and car collection receive equal programmatic importance. The hybrid (7,000 sf residence, 3,000 sf car exhibition) utilizes sunlight to cohere differing programs. A crease in the residence refracts sunlight through the stairs, bridges, and ramps overlooking the car museum, while a wood trellis protects the structure from overheating and tropical rain.

The car collection is accessed via a ramp to the space underground, where it utilizes the full lot square footage. As a result, as many as 20 cars can be stored while retaining exhibition quality.

A garden circumferences the villa and regulates the amount of light transported through the terraces, across the villa, and down into the car exhibition. A swimming pool overlooks the 6,500 sf garden on one side and the car exhibition on the other. On top, a roof terrace houses an outdoor kitchen and guest quarters.
