Casa Tudor
San Isidro, Lima (2014-2016)
House

“A new house in a four hundred year old heritage protected olive forest with strict restrictions including mandatory Tudor-style architecture”

When settling in Lima in the XVI century, Spanish Conquistadores planted an olive forest which now lies in the middle of the city. Surviving olive trees are protected as National Heritage. During Lima’s great expansion of the 1920’s the forest was urbanized with Neo-Tudor revival (!) residential architecture.

Unlike previous examples of twentieth century revivals where the style was just facade decoration over conventional masonry construction, this house is structurally Tudor, with a steel cage holding the roof, placed on a post-tensioned concrete slab.
