Melbourne Family Buys a House in a Hill (24 pics)

Posted in Arts » Design   5 Apr 2012   / 8247 views

Can you imagine living in the house that looks like a hill, like some hobbit or Teletubby? Look at the Hill House built by Tasmanian architect Andrew Maynard in Melbourne, Australia.

 

A family from Melbourne wanted to renovate their house, but instead of dismantling the place they decided to build some absolutely new construction in the backyard of the old one. That’s how they got this modern-looking building with minimalistic design and an artificial hill slope in front.

The old house was poorly planned which made it too dark, so the new building fully utilizes the solar power – it is located in a way that allows it to get as much sunlight as possible, and the protruding box on its top cuts out the hot sun rays in the summer and accumulates the sun heat in winter.

I think the inside looks much better than the outside except for that stupid table with all the holes in it.

That black box is pretty stupid, it must be freakishly hot in the summer, or expensive to keep it cool.
