The Philip M Dingemanse architectural bureau has presented the project of a valley house, Australia. The residence of 267 sq. meters is embedded into the northwest slope of the hill. Such location allows observing the neighboring city and river outside of it. While developing this comfortable family house the architects strived to combine functional requirements with conditions of certain terrain and climate. The dark façade has protective wings and opened sections, allowing the sun rays to enter the house. Small terraces are located on both sides of the building and lead to the kitchen. The house`s structure is made of a timber. The outer shell is covered with metal sheet. The house is equipped with efficient water heating technology and photoelectric generator, located and the center of the storage block, as well as LED lighting fixtures, installed all around the place.
