another retirement home in another country

I  wasted a little bit of time on the web while reading the comments for my last post and came across this. Thought it would be interesting.

A place to die for.
A retirement home for a philosopher on the hills of Peru. Find more info here.

"A hill in Pachacamac, located 40 km south of Lima near Peru’s coast, is the site for the retirement home of a philosopher. The response to the site’s conditions was to bury the house, trying to create a balanced dialogue between architecture and landscape"

Architects: Longhi Architects
Location: Pachacamac, Peru
