Anyone built in the country on a challenging site w a western aspect?

Hi all, we only have once spot we can build and because of the contour/gradient, it is very much a site with a western orientation. Beautiful in cooler months but very hot and exposed in summer. I can only find web pages or building information that says "don't do it" but we have no choice. I'm looking for positive stories of good design, best layout and sustainable builds that managed to overcome the challenges but still get the best out of the beautiful views.

Also, where have verandahs gone?? Commonplace in the country but it seems now that most designs are ditching them. Anyone know why?

Thanks in advance, really appreciate it.
