Fayetteville Arkansas | 2015 - Present
The Hillside Rock House is located on a dramatically sloping three-quarter acre wooded site. The house is designed as an abstract geologic outcropping whose form emerges from physical transformation in response to the desire to provide distinct views from each main living space. Three separate terraces are cut into the otherwise solid volume that each allows a different perspective of the site and surrounding environment. The first porch, off of the living area, overlooks the neighborhood through the wooded front edge of the site. The second porch, off of the large bedroom, overlooks the Boston Mountains to the south. The third porch is nestled within the woods and creating a private enclave off of the dining area. The interior of the house is a split-level organization that adapts to the hillside slope.
