D + P worked with the site, pushing the lower part of the house into the hill to ground it in the landscape.
The bedrooms and utility/storage are in the lower part of the house and the fact that this part of the buildings back wall is underground allows it to use the natural warmth of the earth to help to heat the house. All the bedrooms face the morning sun to allow the clients to waken to the sunrise.
All living space, living, kitchen and dining are on the first floor to take advantage of the great views and light. Large roof lights brings dramatic injections of light deep into the house.
