CASA RIVO

PEZO VON ELLRICHSHAUSEN

A couple decided to leave the Chilean capital
to settle in the area close to the southern city of
Valdivia. e site they chose for the project is the
westslope of a hill covered by a dense jungle of
native species. After our rst meetings we realized
that the romantic decision of the couple (that of
retiring to a distant and lonely place) was beingreplaced by a slight, although persistent, apprehension towards the posible weariness of being
together all the time (the image of Abramovic and
Ullay came to our mind). We turned this subtleinconvenient into one of the key problems the
project would try to solve. Together with the radical conditions of the site, this problem led us to
the following main decisions: rst, to contain all
theprogram in a compact and monolithic volume, with an over dimensioned perimeter wall
that contains all the services and would help keep
the temperature; second, to gain height in order
to be able tolook over the trees and obtain views
and sun throughout most of the day; third, to distance the three private rooms (bedroom, studio
and o ce) from each other as much as possible so
as to stimulatethe search (between them) within
the house; and fourth, to unify the public activities with an open space, oriented towards the
north, that would allow to look at the outside following thetransversal and diagonal topography
of the hill.
e whole structure of the house is made of pine
wood. e walls, oors and ceilings of the public
space and the rooms are all covered with the same
type ofwooden boards placed horizontally. e
entire exterior surface is covered with two layers
of vertical siding made of simple, untreated pine
boards and painted with a mixture of oil and tar
(verytipically used for protection in local barn
construction).
