The Hill House | Santa Monica | Johnston Marklee
The Hill House is designed under conditions generated by modern problems of building on the hillside. The site an irregular shaped lot situated on an uneven downhill slope, offers a panoramic views of Santa Monica Canyon.The design of the house utilises the restriction of hillside and zoning ordinance to create a spatial and structural opportunity-adopting a zoning envelope as building form.The dynamic form minimizes distinction between roof and wall planes by maximizing distinction between interior and exterior.
