The Plaza Paz Soldán is emblematic of San Isidro, Lima's most exclusive neighborhood, where the business and financial center is located. This travel agency sells travel packages for the Caribbean and occupies a lot adjoining the plaza and flanked by 2 monumental constructions: the 18-century Los Condes hacienda and the Church of the Virgen del Pilar. Uncontrolled urban growth made the plaza difficult to access, owing to traffic congestion: dwarfed by the awkward neighboring constructions, it is protected behind high walls. This project represented an opportunity for a salvage operation which would give back the plaza its appropriate scale, bring out the historical monuments, and generate public space. Therefore the program is concentrated into a compact volume set back behind a "liquid plaza" which reflects the surroundings and act as a buffer. A long bench for passers-by was installed around the perimeter of the lot, with a pedestrian passageway to the entry and the parking area.
