Peruvian architect Marina Vella has designed Casa Entrecopas, a home that draws both inspiration and materiality from its location: the interior of a large historical farm located North of Lima, in Peru. Thanks to the construction techniques and to the local materials used, the result is an architecture that is intrinsically sustainable and in close harmony with the idyllic surrounding landscape.
