Architect Jorge Marsino Prado designed a home in Peru that has the perfect rooftop space for entertaining. The zoning of the home only allowed a one-floor home with a roof terrace to be built on the lot.
The reason for this is so that everyone living in the area can enjoy the “essential joys” of sun, space, vegetation, and the view over the desert landscape between the Isle of Asia and the coastal foothills of the Andes.
Since only one above ground floor could be built, the home has a basement to provide extra space. The rooftop also has a cover for protection from the sun.
