This is accomplished through an efficient and functional arrangement of space and utilities while encouraging an expressive and creative lifestyle. The main objective with the Clifton Hill House was to create a home that both shelters and enhances the daily living of the clients for now and generations to come. The primary function of providing shelter to a family of four that embraces and respects the environment while protecting and sheltering the clients from the harsh elements has resulted in a building that can honestly call itself “green”.
