Horizon House

Respecting and making the most of a difficult sloping, rocky site, Horizon House maximises it's elevated position and sweeping views. 

By hugging the hillside, stepping down over various levels the building opens out to the site at each of these changes to allow maximum connection with the landscape.

Encouraging the occupants to interact with their built environment, by providing a site and climatic responsive building. Creating no clear distinction between inside and outside and providing manually adjustable environmental controls which actually allow the occupants to choose the appropriate level of exposure /retreat according the current climatic conditions.
