Hillside Home Design with Roof Entrance

Built into a hillside in San Elena, Colombia, architect Antonio Sofan designed this innovative timber and tile slope house. From uphill, this contemporary underground architecture is virtually invisible, but for a flat wood roof. From downhill you’ll appreciate the home’s modern touches, like its geometric wood facade, glass walls and modern glass-block detail. At this point, you might find yourself wondering how to get inside this unusual house – try the roof. That’s right, that hatch you see doubles as a doorway and skylight. Across the roof-cum-rooftop patio, an orange-tiled stairway leads you down the hillside depths and into a modern, minimalist interior – glass-walled, light-filled and luxurious. At just 100-sq.-ft., this chic vacation house is compact, but packs a punch in such a small and stylish space. Antonio Sofan

  1. How the freak do they channel water away from the front door? When it rains it will all go down the flipping hole!
