The Riva House is located in a plot with an area of 10,000m2 in the middle of a golf court. The
house, with only one level, is designed with the reference of “the patio house” a configuration
used in Peru during colonial times in which the different programs of the house are designed
around a central interior patio.
Following this concept, the house is organized around an
interior void, without losing its connection with the golf court.
This interior void becomes in the pivotal element for the configuration of all the spaces,
emphasizing the transparency between the terrace and the interior social area which is
directly connected with the golf court.
This transparency is perceived from the entrance and
becomes the main axis, trying to produce a feeling of amplitude and depth as one moves
around the house.
The project also proposes the interaction between all its social spaces (living room, dining
room, lounge, bar, BBQ area, pool and terrace) so that diffuse spatial relations are produced,
blurring the barrier between interior and exterior, up and down, fusing everything in one large
