The Beautiful Landscape is The Jewel—The House is Designed to Blend in.
This striking design of home and surrounds is built on a hilltop in Lima, Peru. Called Pachamanca House, it has breathtaking views, but at the same time it respects the environment and the natural elements give it a bold yet welcoming feeling.
