BIG Architects’ Hill House has a Garden on Top
M2 Homes offers a range of residences designed by well-known architects at prices comparable to traditional houses. They asked Bjarke Ingels to design a home and he was inspired by the garden because it is one of the aspects that many people enjoy most about their homes. As it is an important feature for many people, Ingels made the garden the primary feature.
The Hill House is not a house with a garden — it is a garden house that sits underneath a green roof covered in sedum plants, which are low maintenance and drought tolerant. The sedum roof infiltrates water and insulates the interior from heat in the summer and cold in the winter. Placing the garden on top of the house also creates an interesting topography for play or leisure — in wintry Denmark, it might even be possible to use it as a ski or sledding hill.
