Furman + Keil Architects Hillside Residence

The Hillside Residence presentation will describe the evolution of schematic design to maximize the program on a challenging urban lot.  We will discuss how we used the site constraints to find unique design opportunities while adhering to Subchapter F guidelines.  Our client will speak of his experience self-performing as general contractor and the finish technique of the board-formed interior and exterior concrete walls.

Learning Objectives

  1. Assess the challenges and solutions of complex program requirements on a small urban lot.
  2. Evaluate site constraints and develop design opportunities from them.
  3. Understand the residential permit review process and how Subchapter F is interpreted on a sloped and uniquely shaped lot.
  4. Describe the challenges of meeting project expectations when working with a client who is also the general contractor.


While we are still practicing social distancing due to the pandemic, all tours will be virtual, conducted via Zoom. To receive reminders, please sign up for the CRAN Committee mailings in the footer of our website.
