Concrete balconies and planters front Lima apartments by Barclay & Crousse



Architecture firm Barclay & Crousse has used concrete plant plots overspilling with greenery to offer residents of an apartment building Lima privacy.
UN Park Apartments is located next to Parque Naciones Unidas, which translates as United Nations Park, in the Miraflores area of the Peruvian capital.

The site is open to the park in the south, Avenue Aganmos Oeste to the north and a cul-de-sac to the east ? a feature the local firm said the project offered them an unusual opportunity for design in the city.
"Plots with three facades are not usual in Lima, a city where there are no gaps between buildings," said Barclay & Crousse.

Balconies and windows wrap the three walls of the concrete building but have different designs on each facade to respond to surroundings and the sun. "The open sides are surrounded by a continuous cantilevered balcony that acts as a buffer space between domestic interior and urban exterior conditions," the firm added.

A standout feature of the building is the longest side that faces the cul-de-sac, which has curved concrete balconies separated by vertical screens made from Peruvian stone Estela Sombra. These are angled to provide privacy and shading.
Glazed balustrades are draped with greenery growing from large cylindrical concrete plant pots.
