Utah-based design studio Axis Architects has designed the H-House project. Completed in 2008, the luxury hilltop residence overlooks Salt Lake City in Utah.
According to the architects: “The H House is a modern residence located high on Salt Lake City’s East Bench on Devonshire. The living spaces of the house are oriented towards the expansive views of the valley and the Great Salt Lake.
“One of the challenges of this project was to allow for the views to the west, while protecting the contemporary Salt Lake City house from the afternoon sun. A large overhanging shading device provides shade and gives a distinctive character to the house.
“The volumes of the contemporary Utah house follow the slope of the terrain and reinforce the integration of the house into its environment.”
