Under the green roof sits a simply-designed home with an open floor plan kitchen, living room, and dining room — all of which face the side of the house with large glass windows, providing views out into the yard and to the south. Three bedrooms, a utility room and bathrooms line the back wall of the house, which is covered with a wooden facade for protection from the wind. Each room in the back opens up onto the shared living spaces.

Outside, another green-roofed structure serves as a carport and storage area. All M2 houses offer a degree of flexibility when it comes to materials, design and size — rooms, bathrooms and storage can all be customized to accommodate each family. The first Hill House for M2 homes was completed back in 2007.
