The Palabritas Beach House by the Peruvian firm Metropolis focuses on ocean views with a modern, yet ’60s-inspired aesthetic. While the house’s main color is white, red accents are seen everywhere making a bold statement in contrast.

One of the exterior sides has a concrete lattice panel that allows for light to pass through while still giving privacy.
