PERMACULTURE PLANS


The Grade

As the name suggests, the Hillside Center For Sustainable Living is located on a hillside. Although this could be seen as a detriment, we have used it to our advantage. By building homes into the hillside we are able to benefit from the thermal mass of the hill and create first floor access points to multiple floors of the building. The exterior architecture is a result of contemporary energy saving technology, urban design, and is rooted in traditional New England designs such as gable roofs, large farmer's porch, and wood accents.

Hillside is strategically planned to facilitate the building of community. Neighbors make a house become a home, and together you create a place that you are proud to live in. 

 

Home to 48 units composed of 1, 2, and 3 bedrooms, Hillside's design concepts demonstrate the collaboration between sustainability, energy conservation, fostering community, and ecological resilience. The site's unique topography has allowed us to create first floor access to multiple levels of residential units and common buildings. 

Building footprints and streets have been intricately integrated with the topography to manipulate water flow and runoff - allowing for water to slow, spread, and sink into the soil. This will prove to be most beneficial in fostering plant life, stopping soil erosion, and largely cutting back on the runoff to public sewage systems. By living at Hillside you are able to truly live in a manner that generates health for the environment, people, and community.
