From the likes of David Coleman Architecture comes this Hill House located in Winthrop, Washington.



This modest-yet-delightfully-rustic abode comprises of a 20′ x 115′ platform, a shelter formed by the roof and east wall, and several gabion stone walls. The site sits on a long, narrow, rocky hillside, sloping gently to the south and steeply to the east and west. Sustainable materials, technologies and techniques are used throughout the building process: Recycled steel, sustainably harvested wood, BIBS insulation in oversized wall and ceiling cavities, on-demand hot water, low-flow fixtures and convection heat are just a few of the strategies employed. The building reads and lives like a habitable landscape, adapting to the changing seasons and needs of its occupants.
