House on a Hill is a project designed by Artel31. This hillside site above Bath has to rate as one of the best we’ve ever been engaged to work on for its uninterrupted views down the valley to the world heritage city of Bath. We wanted to create a hillside house that both framed the views and sat in it seamlessly when viewed from the opposite hill. Photography by Pete Helme.

Hyde Park House is a project designed by Robeson Architects. Situated on a busy street, the Hyde Park House seeks to maximise views to both the leafy Hyde Park across the road and the city skyline beyond, whilst maintaining the privacy of the family. Whilst not strictly a ‘heritage control zone’, both neighbouring properties had character homes on them, and the local council was very prescriptive and unyielding when it came to permitted external materials, street setbacks and building forms. The challenge was to design a home that was not ‘faux heritage’, but was rather a contemporary interpretation that fit in the streetscape, and suited the unique needs of the family.

Mehra Residence is a project designed by team3. Urban residences today are often characterized by cramped living spaces amidst urban jungles with little to no connection to the outdoors. The design of the Mehra Residence seeks to redefine this stereotype using a series of strategies to take advantage of its location. The design intent was to craft spaces that establish a strong relationship to its surrounding landscape, bringing in views, daylight, fresh air and a sense of tranquility.

BB House is a project designed by elton_léniz arquitectos. In a private urbanization of five lots in front of Lake Calafquén and the Villarrica Volcano in southern Chile, this compact house sits almost like a container, on a wooden structure with minimal intervention in the terrain and the slope. The narrow proportion of the site suggested a small, vertical design that would allow maximizing unobstructed views of the impressive geography while freeing up as much space as possible between neighboring buildings.
