Additions & Alterations
Hill House is an addition and alteration of an existing house built in the early 1960s. Located in Klein Windhoek, the house is situated on a sloped site overlooking the Olaf Palmer ridge with a spectacular view towards the Auas mountain range in the south.
The original double-story house, which is primarily south facing, comprised of three bedrooms, kitchen, dining, small living area, veranda and pool upstairs, with a downstairs lounge, guest bedroom, garage and entrance portal. The house was an amalgamation of consecutive additions and alterations, which ultimately lacked coherence and function. The primarily south-facing orientation caused the house to be extremely cold and quite dark in winter. The stunning southern view over the Klein Windhoek valley also remained entirely uncelebrated.
