Residential Architecture: W Houses by Barclay & Crousse: “..This set of 4 houses stems from a “prototype” house, La Casa Equis (2003), situated in the same bay. While the houses were not designed as a set, they share a coherency with their surroundings and reference the life style engendered by the Peruvian desert..The houses explore the concept of the “Articificial Beach,” where in a temperate climate, neither hot nor cold, without winds or rain, architecture can be stripped of its role to shelter and thus concentrate on creating intimacy and celebrating the pleasures of living..” Luxury, views..includes sketches, floor plans, sections and video..
