hill houses

April 30, 2010

a look at a few houses built along fairmount boulevard, and how they maneuver the slope.

i love this simple elevation.  architect unknown.

one of the few houses on the down slope that is built on grade.  this house nestles into the hill beautifully and has a notch in the roof to allow the tree to grow through right at the building wall.

the detached garage for the same house is also notched to allow for a tree.

will martin architect.  simple and timeless in a 70’s way.

green metal barn on stilts.

parking the car is a huge challenge on these sloping sites.

big house and mini-house.

it’s as if they forgot they were building on a slope…
