The Viewpoint House by 2.8x Arquitectos has simple and novelty-like designs that makes use of the hillside location. This house resembles a hillside fishbowl with its panoramic views from every angle that overlook the spectacular city of Lima, Peru.

The location of this home is irregular with a road completely surrounding the sloping site. This home was inspired by the owner who wanted a property that embodied sophistication, modernism, minimalism and natural light.

The home is made up of a glass section that is ideal for socializing with a view of the city, and the other area is made from concrete and stone, which allows for privacy. The roof of the building has a concrete and stone patio with a grassy section that provides a truly remarkable view.
