The House in La Encantada designed by Javier Artadi is a stunning example of how architects can play with light and form to create a gorgeous contemporary home. The House in La Encantada, located in a suburb of the capital of Peru, is a simple design constructed on two floors. The most captivating element of the home is the open entranceway; from the exterior you can see all the way up the staircase to the second floor.

The House in La Encantada is consistent with its clean contemporary feel: all of the walls are painted white and there is a lot glass used. I really like the home because it feels like a little calm oasis away from the hustle and bustle of city life.
