For many, it might come as a surprise that Lima, Peru, is one of the ten biggest cities in the world, and Verdea is a condo that shows the vastly different types of neighborhoods in the area. The luxury condo is located in Miraflores, the wealthiest district in Lima, and it shows. It has an elegant, modern design that's highlighted by a primarily glass back face.

Verdea was designed by Poggione + Biondi Arquitectos, a local studio, and it is meant to represent the next step in the aesthetic of Miraflores as a whole. The neighborhood experienced its initial boom of growth in the sixties, and many of the apartments, houses, and condos around reflect those design ideas. Verdea is thus a look at the future of design as juxtaposed against the past.
