Lima-based 51-1 arquitectos where hired to adapt an existing home with a small back garden for a new family. Since the new owners wanted plenty of grassy outdoor areas, the designers had to come up with a solution that could be adapted to the existing plot. Restricted by the small area and the wish to fill the home’s interiors with natural light, they’ve built up the garden into several layered terraces.

By cutting and bending the garden’s design, they came up with a perfectly fitted spiral. This maximizes the plot available, allows green garden views from all interiors, and grants the owners with many different outdoor spaces. To top it all, the highest garden on the third floor has been equipped with a prefab hut and a pool, which can be enjoyed year-round thanks to the fabulous tropical weather.
