RV House is a two-storey dwelling in Vila Nova de Gaia. The house is squeezed onto a long and narrow plot, which measures 30 meters in length and six meters in width. The form of the building, and its undulating roofline, responds to the path of the sun — ensuring that the property benefits from as much natural light as possible. The shape and configuration of the structure is also a result of the surrounding urban environment, with openings carefully positioned to ensure both privacy and illumination.

The house has a Lunawood facade, which was left untreated in order to convey a strong visual impact emphasizing the sustainable and contemporary design.
