Hill House

Compact site with a steep slope needed to disappear from the street scape, keep the heat out and open up to the southern views. Detailing combines a respect for good craftsmanship with modern simplicity. Simple, carpenters joinery creates shading, privacy and open storage. Off-form concrete, burnished floors and block are durable and provide good shaded thermal mass to deal with the heat. All areas have close connection to garden with careful location of a central courtyard to transition from the old to new.
