Hill House

Cary Bernstein | Architect as Architects

The complete transformation of a well-worn 1930’s bungalow created a modern home for a young family of three. Sectional shifts in the architecture and landscaped terraces unify the building and hillside site. The newly amplified and light-filled interior belies its compact, mid-block footprint. Rigorously detailed construction is enriched by warm, textured materials and fluid connections to the surrounding gardens. In contrast to the building’s materiality, plentiful glazing erodes the envelope. The interplay between solid and void, light and dark, intimate and expansive, machined and handmade, landscape and architecture, uniquely integrates Hill House with its site.
