Las Casuarinas is an urbanization in Lima City, Peru and it features a residential project designed by the Metropolis – Jose Orrego architectural practice and it is entitled Lineal House, featuring a very open contemporary style that takes advantage of the impressive natural surroundings.

The residence is spread over two floors with the upper level giving access to the back garden and to the swimming pool with terrace. The layout is L-shaped with entrance made from a side through a landscaped passageway the lower level is accessed via a staircase which brings you to a more secluded part of the home, surrounded by a large wall, with glazed walls to bring light inside.

The walls ensure the privacy of the inhabitants but they improve the ambiance as well since they are made of stone and covered with vegetation to bring an organic element into the design, while the rest of the interior is mostly comprised of neutral tones enriched by the wooden flooring and by the textural gray wall.
