PROCTER RIHL - SLICE HOUSE


























Procter Rihl - Slice house, Porto Alegre RS, Brazil

"We believe architecture should be climate and culture responsive. Cultural identity should be retained and can be improved through responsive architecture. Our practice is interested in reinterpreting local design and architectural archetypes with current design and energy use sensibilities. With each project we employ materials that have local contextual qualities. Spatially, the practice aims to explore complex geometries in architecture to create exciting experiences of space. A simple shift or stretching of a traditional form can produce an illusion of greater space." from: procter-rihl.com
