Living on a Slope
The Hillside House is a 1990 Sq ft addition to an existing house on a steep slope in Portola Valley, California situated in a pocket of Oak woodlands. The existing house had partial views of the spectacular landscape below, but lacked access to it. The new addition blends into the surroundings by gently cascading down the hill, echoing the natural slope of the site. The stairs consist of three foot treads that act as a series of intermittent landings allowing ease of ascending and descending the hill for children and adults alike.
