Benefits of building with the slope

Building on a sloping site often provides the opportunity for spectacular and innovative design outcomes such as stepped floors, high ceilings and clerestory windows.

Building with the slope means your home is designed with the fall and flow of the land, allowing for better use of all living spaces. By working with the unique slope, you can ensure you take advantage of the endless benefits that a sloping site has to offer.

Things to consider when building on a sloping site

To ensure your new home takes full advantage of the location you will need to consider the following aspects during the design process:

  • The angle and consistency of the slope
  • The views you want to take advantage of
  • The homes position in relation to the sun
  • How to maximise the the natural light into the home’s key areas
  • Lifestyle aspects such as sheltered outdoor living spaces

Environmentally friendly

Designing your home to follow the natural contours of the land and to work with your site can result in minimising excavation and retaining works, which in turn can mean less impact on the environment.

Depending on the features of your site, careful consideration of the environment and your homes impact on it can enhance your site and ensure that your home feels like it just “belongs”.
