Description
ARQUIA, an international development firm interested in conducting architectural contests at a worldwide level, requires a new kind of “Condominium Tower” for one of the most beautiful residential zones in Lima. The architecture of this new building should reflect contemporary design tendencies, standing out for the uniqueness of its architectural design, while meshing in with the surrounding San Isidro urban tissue.
The desired residential condos strive to become a new prototype for one of the key residential areas in Lima, Peru. In other words, this project should be think for a single person (single, divorced, widow or a newly wedding couple) who wish to live in the coolest zone of San Isidro. This is why ARQUIA, wishes not just to adapt national parameters and regulations, but also to subscribe to sterling international quality, renewable energy and green design criteria in an effort to set a precedent in local standards, whilst helping to revitalize the inner market and setting a precedent in residential buildings.
