The Hill House which is under conditions at the moment and in the Pacific Palisades district of Los Angeles, California has been designed by Johnston Marklee Architects. Problems have been generated due to the construction on the hillside which makes the implementation of the project more difficult.
Johnston Marklee says;
Designed for an irregular hillside lot in Los Angeles, the form of this 3,600 square foot single family residence results from two economically driven demands — to maximize the allowable volume permitted by the zoning code, and to minimize the amount of foundations and subsequent footprint of the house. The resulting structure adopts a site specific form by registering the zoning envelope and optimizing the building volume’s performance on an inclined plane. Window quantities are minimized for privacy while window sizes are maximized for views and ventilation. The overall cladding strategy seeks to minimize distinction between roof and wall planes while maximizing the differentiation between interior and exterior.
