Up until now, I was dead sure houses can’t climb, but the talented people from Kovac Architects made me reconsider my position. In the Pacific Pallisades of Los Angeles, they managed to design a house with a contour that climbs up the steep hillside. They named it (how else?) the Hillclimber House. Using lots of stone accents and wood, they managed to create a refined minimalist but modern design with classic accents. It’s “a simple hierarchy of spaces is reflected in the forms and materials used.” And did you expect to see a “between-walls” pool knowing that this house … climbs? – via Trendir
