The Modern Architecture And Unusual Shape Of The Hill House

The Hill House is a residence located in Mount Martha, Australia. As you can see, it has a very imposing structure and design. However, the initial plan was quite different. The house was a project by Rachcoff Vella Architecture. At first, the idea was to create a simple and tranquil home that takes advantage of its location. It was supposed to be a simple but not modest beach house for a single client. But then the plan changed. There were several factors involved.

One of them was the size and shape of the lot. The narrow site has a north-south orientation with beautiful and panoramic views. The client wanted to take advantage of these views. The house was designed into two parts. First the team took care of the simple linear plan and the curvaceous form that follows the shape of the site. Then they had to give the house personality and character so the façade had to stand out.

The Simple, Soft And Elegant Design Of A Vacation Home In Japan

A vacation home needs to be simple. It doesn’t have to look like a regular residence since it’s not. It should be inviting but it should also lack certain elements that would also make it feel less comfortable. But since it’s not easy to describe with words such a design, we found a perfect example. This vacation home can be found near Mount Yatsugatake in Hokuto-City, Japan.

The house was built in 2012 and it was designed by MDS architects. The Tokyo-based architects had to face the challenge of creating a design for a vacation home in an area that doesn’t offer the most pleasant temperatures. Making a house feel inviting and cozy is easy when the weather is helpful as well. But when you can have to do that in spite of what nature throws at you, it becomes a challenge.

Most of the time, weekend retreats or vacation homes have designs that allow them to blend in, to disappear into the landscape.
