Description from Rachcoff Vella:
“Hill Property is proudly a sculptural object embracing an artistic and playful response whilst delivering uncompromised and versatile living for its inhabitants. Particularly made and properly crafted design and style information and constant material selections are essential contributors to the execution of the style concepts for this project. Hill Property is a two storey detached residence made to accommodate the wants of a part time occupant and the influx of her different guests on typical occasions. The internal spaces are extruded along the internet sites long axis taking in the views, while getting shielded against the harsh North-West sun by a veil of adjustable sun controlled external louvers.
Conceptually the interiors are conceived as spaces that allow the principal occupant to engage with the surrounds, embracing a relaxed way of life and calm environment. The flexibility of the internal spaces also makes it possible for her to host an influx of guests and improve the energy and pace of life. Components are purposefully kept to a limited palette of matt completed ‘spotted gum’, ‘Grey Tundra’ natural stone and white flat painted walls to reflect the calmness referred to as for in the brief. The exclusion of highly polished surfaces is juxtaposed by the much more colourful and flamboyant nature of the client and her guests. Delicate detailing of the joinery and deemed fixture selections are made to be playful and to add drama to the spaces.
Spatially accommodating 1 occupant in a house that at occasions can have up to 10+ adults, in a reasonably modest sized property needed revolutionary preparing and zoning. Primarily the primary occupant lives on the first floor taking in the organic light and views and when essential the ground floor can open up like a hotel for guests as they arrive.
The ground floor is zoned both spatially and mechanically with separate heating and cooling. Bedrooms are treated like suites with suitcase layout space in each robe, day-spa bathroom and access to the views on the adjacent ground floor terrace, providing the guest a sense of each seclusion and becoming on holiday. The property achieves an extremely higher level of thermal comfort by means of: exceptional insulation, motorised sun protection that responds to the suns position, utilisation of Low VOCC paints, and the thorough cross ventilation achieved with the effective floor program.”
