The Pyramid House features glass walls that offer exceptional views of the surrounding landscape and allow natural light to penetrate its deepest corners. The openings vary from narrow slits to large glass planes and alternate in a way that gives the building a dynamic appearance that contrasts the static look of the geometry. Distributed across several levels of the pyramidal volume are two bedrooms, a library, kitchen, bathrooms, garage and even a recording studio. A cantilevered balcony is situated near the top of the building between the bathroom and library.

Ramos used 3D rendering software to create photo-realistic renderings that would bring the iconic shape to life. Switching back and forth between 3Ds Max, Photoshop, Itoo, Forest and many more programs, the architect designed a private house that demonstrates simple geometric shapes can be deployed in residential architecture. The house brings examples such as BIG’s cascading towers and steep roofs into the realm of single-family housing and promises to open up a whole new chapter in designing private homes.
