This Hilltop home is especially designed for a family of five in Busabala. Our design approach towards this open home was to create a sculpture that maximize views, provides natural light, and enhances the promenade and transition from everyday facades with very primal forms of nature hence the s-shaped facade.
The structure of the residence was adapted to oppose the characteristics of the site: Circulation modulates through a series of intimate and expansive spaces to the S-shaped glass facade and masonry enclosed single-story volume property. It is the kitchen and family areas that are heart of the house.
Large expanses of glass dematerialize the walling in this building in order to engage and connect to its vast hilltop setting. A large patio volume gives unobstructed views and infinity pool, gesture to the landscape and allows the re-naturalized ravine planting to be drawn further into the site.
When you live in a beautiful natural climate, it is only also natural that you want to enjoy the calm weather, the outdoors, and fuse the local plant life with your home. Such is the case with this single-family residence from us in the stunning hills of Buwate - Kira Town.
The featured home is 510 square meters and was designed for a young couple and their children. One look and you will see exactly how lucky these children will be growing up in this lush paradise.
