#Slope HOUSE: How are houses on slopes designed to fit into a slope yet have spaces that remain functional?

We embarked on this project with the traditional cut and fill concept of constructing on a medium inclined land mass. Being met with a slope of about 2.6ms height variance from road level to its lowest portion on a 750sqms plot size, this country home was divided into 3 levels; having the main entrance, ante room, guest quarters and 3 bedrooms plus its family day living area cleverly tucked away from visitors on the ground floor level.

A basement (lower level) floor is created to accommodate the main living areas visitors climb down to with its dining, open and wet kitchen plus a wall winery. A gym is cleverly situated here with all space functions overlooking a pool at this level.

The pentfloor above contains a cinema, kitchenette, master lounge, master and madams bedroom, an extra vanity room, large walk in closet and an outdoor sky terrace.

The traditional gable roofing system as demanded by the client is over exaggerated in its front facade with a punctuation over the sky terrace of the pent floor.

Water flowing towards the rear of the site posses a major problem and is taken care of by the use of “slump pits” at the 2 major extremes of the site for water retention and pumped to the front of the site.

Traditional meets modern architecture.
