Hillside Residence

Project Summary

As the second phase development of a huge residential urban project, this hillside plot is to be converted to a commercial/residential mega-structure. The plot has a height difference of 36 meters, requiring a substantial excavation. I did two designs for this one, each with a different axis placement.

Alternative Two was the one chosen to move forward. As of today, this project has been built with rather high fidelity to the initial design I made. Obviously, market forces have worked to simplify the forms and facades, but there we go: SEE HERE! Also, this is how it looks from the front.
