The project for Rivo Alto House responds to a typical architectural program without being conventional. This proposal for a residence is conceptualized in a unique way. It is based on a pragmatic parameter and far from social rules or conventions. It arises through the experimentation, on a deep study but above all on a resolution to functions over form. It is based strictly on the premise of inhabiting in the realm of the exterior and the interior; it is focused in the form, in the perspectives, in the angles and the projecting visuals. The program of the house develops an inside playful esthetic, clearly formal and conceptual as well as experiential on visual photogenic diversities. The house is full of intersections and pure diagonals, but above all is based on an intense study on lighting and shadows enjoyable from each angle.
