Hillside House Single House by Hom Liou and Bruce Wang

Home > Winners > #71363


DESIGN DETAILS
DESIGN NAME:
Hillside House

PRIMARY FUNCTION:
Single House

INSPIRATION:
A successful entrepreneur wanted to live in a valley for the retired life. The concept of the design is to build a modern house but full of nature, to design a single house reacting to the hillside.

UNIQUE PROPERTIES / PROJECT DESCRIPTION:
A house is the basic type of architecture, but its function is complex. To address the complexity of daily life on this particular site, we split the house into four rectangular boxes that interact with the land in different ways, hoping to create various spaces to meet different functions along the sloping contour, and allow nature to flow in.

OPERATION / FLOW / INTERACTION:
The split-boxes inset, touch or flow above the ground, they also slide horizontally and vertically in response to the changing slope to implicate the main and the subordinate, the public and the private, and to create the roofed parking space down below and semi-outdoor space above. Although seemingly independent, these rectangular boxes are inter-connected with ramp, stair and pathway on the inside and outside; walking through it, the arrangement of architecture create a constantly changing and overlapping view of man-made geometry and framed nature.

PROJECT DURATION AND LOCATION:
The project started from March 2014 to October 2017 in Hsinchu of Taiwan.

FITS BEST INTO CATEGORY:
Architecture, Building and Structure Design

PRODUCTION / REALIZATION TECHNOLOGY:
RC structure, Steel and glass.

SPECIFICATIONS / TECHNICAL PROPERTIES:
It is around 660 m2 interior space and a parking lot space on ground floor.

TAGS:
architecture, single house, hill, interior, Taiwan, slope

RESEARCH ABSTRACT:
The client has property in city. The hillside house should remain same living quality but also provide something different, something nature. Sunlight, wind, rain and green should be everywhere and also can be felt by many ways. The changing of weather reminds us the time passing; the growing and dying of nature reminds us the life going. It is the most luxury experience in this hillside house.

CHALLENGE:
Due to the culture and weather issues, people in Taiwan are very conservative in residential space design; are very similar in the way of life. This project challenges traditional home concept and provide a new house vision for Taiwanese. It is the most challenging and valuable.
