Peru’s Writhing Tower Twists and Turns Into the Skyline


Twisting and turning into the skyline, Writhing Tower by China-based architecture firm LYCS is a new residential building conceptualized for Lima, Peru. With each unit rotating 45 degrees, residents will have uninterrupted views of both the public park in front of the site, and the ocean to the rear. Additionally, each unit has blocked views to the unit above and below, creating a nice extra layer of privacy.

Each unit is a two-story townhouse featuring a garden terrace with trees, and a pool with a deck. Due to the unique geometric play in the overall tower form, each terrace is able to receive warm tropical sunshine, complimented perfectly with a cool summer breeze.
