Located in Melbourne, Australia, featured today is a stylishly sleek and ultra modern “Hill House” designed by Andrew Maynard Architects. A quite complex design, the space was uplifted during construction to take in the surrounding views and allow an immense amount of sunlight into the home. The landscape was originally flat, and after exploring ways on how to manipulate the space to comfortably fit a family a five, the designers decided to raise the land level and create a hill that would cascade into the backyard for a place of enjoyment right of the kitchen. Working with a limited amount of space for outdoor lounging and entertaining, the designers created one large indoor outdoor area, blurring the line of distinction between the two while promoting social interaction.
