It's difficult to stand out in the megalopolis of Lima, Peru, especially in the ritzy neighborhood of Miraflores, but AVA Building nonetheless manages to do so. The apartment building features a facade full of balconies that alternate between angling outward over the road and back inward toward the building, contributing to a rippling effect that's appropriate for the building's surroundings.

AVA Building is on Lima's coastline, and its balconies have a tremendous view of the Pacific ocean beyond (as a popular surfing destination, Lima's coastline also offer the view of athletes cruising the waves.) In fact, the top floor of the building has an exposed lounge area with a pool, giving an even more relaxing view while being well suited to the tropical climate.
