H-House, Salt Lake City by Axis Architects

The H-House was completed in 2009 by Axis Architects. One of the main objectives was to protect the home from the afternoon sun, while keeping the amazing views over the lake and City.

This residence is located on Salt Lake City’s East Bench on Devonshire, overlooking Salt Lake City, Utah, USA.

H-House, Salt Lake City by Axis 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 house from the afternoon sun. A large overhanging shading device provides shade and gives a distinctive character to the house.

The volumes of the house follow the slope of the terrain and reinforce the integration of the house into its environment.”
