Wooyo Hillside House (Single House) by Hom Liou
2018 - 2019, Golden A' Architecture, Building and Structure Design Award Winner
A successful entrepreneur wanted to live in a valley for the retired life. The concept of the design is to build a modern house but full of nature, to design a single house reacting to the hillside.
A house is the basic type of architecture, but its function is complex. To address the complexity of daily life on this particular site, we split the house into four rectangular boxes that interact with the land in different ways, hoping to create various spaces to meet different functions along the sloping contour, and allow nature to flow in.
Design Challenges
Due to the culture and weather issues, people in Taiwan are very conservative in residential space design; are very similar in the way of life. This project challenges traditional home concept and provide a new house vision for Taiwanese. It is the most challenging and valuable.
Production Technology
RC structure, Steel and glass.
