Hill Top Lane House

Photographer: Lightforge Photography (Dennis Radermacher)



This new contemporary hillside family home with swimming pool was developed over several levels following the topography. All main rooms are orientated to north with access to a number of different outdoor areas which provide shelter from prevailing winds, to capture the sun from morning until evening and to assist with cross ventilation of the entire house. The house has extensive glazing to capture the sea and city views from all rooms.
