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.

BB House by elton_léniz arquitectos
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.
