Architect’s Statement: The Villa BRISE has as a starting point its composition of volumes. The second floor makes visual wight in the relationship among the building object masses, but also reveals lightness and translucity as garanteed effects given by the brise-soleil in the façades.

The solution for organization of the functions was given in two floors. In the ground floor there are social and service spaces, and on the second floor the intimate spaces.

The double height living room is involved by a mezzanine thet ir the circulation of the second floor. All the core of the house receives filtered natural light, from the protection of the brise-soleil and the roff’s overhang.

For the brise-soleil execution, thousands of alluminium strips were used, with three different tonnalities of the bronze color. This external skin is the most remarkable element in the composition and gives the house the possibility of a relationship with the exterior in a very subtle and ephemerous way.
