This building, named the Hope View House, was completed in 2017. It is set into a steeply sloping hillside and faces due south with most windows having a floor to ceiling glazing on that facade. To avoid potential problems with overheating, the glazed facade is set 1.5m back behind a stone clad arcade which creates a covered colonnade. This simple solution provides optimal solar shading.
