We show that, by exploiting a dual strategy based on the spontaneous surface restructuration of some perovskite substrates and the layer-by-layer growth of nanometric heteroepitaxial perovskite layers, surfaces with laterally modulated surface relief, chemical termination, electrostatic potential, and electrical conductance can be obtained.
