RiscoWhite appears to us as a striped white concrete block, torn silently, that extends along the lowest platform where the volumes gravitate in serenity, in a game of two heights that enjoys its immense landscape. The land is presented in two elevated platforms, supported by high granite walls and hawks from which small flowers emerge, it is here that RiscoWhite is located. In the act of transmitting its natural condition, the Architecture and accepting the site and its historical legacy, an attempt to transmit the existing language – a small housing unit – without speculation or ambition.
