House H by AOZ Arquitecto y Urbanista is an innovative residence on the outskirts of Lima, Peru, which has been designed with privacy and its surroundings in mind.

House H can almost be considered backwards -- the house has been built so that its back is to the street, allowing for the residents to enjoy a view of the sprawling garden and avoiding the busy street on which the house resides.

The house, built almost entirely from concrete and steel, is also layered intricately to create a unique three-level structure that is partially underground.

House H by AOZ is an interesting approach to cultivating a better quality of life through design that takes control of the views and unique characteristics of the property in a way that never compromises on contemporary style.
