Building a house on the hills always presents challenges. Many sites are steep, some have restricted access and others have unstable ground. This project had all three challenges and groundwater run-off to further complicate the build.
The minimalist, white plastered exterior of this home gives little hint of what lies beneath, and that’s a measure of the success of the build. With hidden rainwater cavities, seismic joints and foundations on 12 levels this truly is a house with secrets.
Inside the home there’s no evidence of the secrets beneath or the technical sophistication of the structure itself. All that remains for the eye to enjoy are the exquisite finishing details and of course, the beautiful views that come with a home on the hill.
Sometimes it’s what you don’t see that’s the real proof of excellence, though what you can see is certainly stunning.
